I own several Beatles albums and a couple John Lennon ones. Though I do not listen to them all that much these days, I still like 'em. Lennon wrote IMAGINE, one of the most memorable (and played) songs of all time. Great lyrics. Oh - watch the documentary, The US vs. John Lennon. Very interesting stuff about how Lennon's activism and voice for peace enraged the United States government. Peace.
