I worshipped The Beatles as I was growing up; I thought they were the absolute shit and I still do. John was always my favourite, so cocky and raw. I wish we’d seen him grow old. I was pondering what he would have grown into recently, then saw this Vanity Fair article which imagines it and was fun to read. I think he’d have grown into an even more radical old hippy, continuing to shock us all, campaign for his causes and generally just be extremely cool. Such a loss. Happy Birthday Johnny.
(I love this clip, it has such lovely footage of John from over the years. And the bit where he thanks Phil Spector at the end is hilarious.)
