I love this image from the performance. Clapton is clearly shocked/awed/amazed/bemused by Yoko’s classic screaming-as-singing while her son, Sean, is obviously used to her raggedy voice and just plays along.
The Beatles were born into The Blues. Their early work is washed in the tinted tones of human suffering and a wailing against a natural born plot in life. When I recently watched the 1988 documentary — Imagine: John Lennon — I was provided us an intimate look into the making of John’s Imagine album, and I was struck by the kindness John and Yoko gave to a Stranger discovered living in a garden on their English estate.
The story of original Delta Blues guitarist Mississippi John Hurt is one of mystery and heartbreak. In 1928 he made a groundbreaking record of many Delta Blues tunes and then the Great Depression struck and all the music stopped and he disappeared.
If you knew that there were an omniscient eye that watched over you and your every deed and thought, would you behave any differently? For my whole life, I was raised with the belief that there was an all knowing deity that created everything in the world that was cognizant not only of what we did but what we thought as well.
Thirty years ago, Billy and Elton sang sweet; now soured.
John Edwards is, and has always been, a Nancy Boy fraud and a phony when it comes to morality, values and in propagating the memes of authenticity. Cheating on your wife is wrong. Cheating on your wife dying of cancer is dead wrong.
