It's almost trite to post a tribute to John Lennon on the anniversary of his death so, even though I consider myself to be one of the world's biggest fans of The Beatles, I've never participated in the ritual. However, this year I've decided to make the first Christmas music post a very simple statement. It's his famous Christmas song's official video.
It's true that Lennon was a contradiction. Here was a man with a mile wide violent streak who did so much to promote world peace and, outside of his great music, that's what he'll always be remembered for.
Happy Christmas John!
