JOHN LENNON FOREVER (8.12.2010)
Thirty years ago John was cold-blooded murdered / Il y a 30 ans, John fut assassiné de sang-froid. Tribute...
Instant Karma ! : by Lennon/Ono (With the Plastic Ono Band) and George Harrison on guitar released in February 1970 : recorded in a day and produced by Phil Spector, hits UK #5 and US #3. George plays guitar and Allen Klein and assorted club-goers from London's Hatchetts club provide chorus.
Imagine : by John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (October 1971) :
-album : Imagine, commercially his most successful LP record, features a melodic pop sound and is acclaimed as his best solo work. The album, containing 2 thinly-veiled attacks on Paul McCartney in Crippled Inside and How Do You Sleep ?, tops both UK and US charts.
-single (released in 10/1971) : peace-themed Imagine hits US #3; Lennon resists its UK release. Mais heureusement pas en Belgique ni en France et aussi dans la plupart des autres pays du Globe.
