The Late Great Johnny Ace

Today is the 25th Anniversary of John Lennon’s assassination. For a while, the party line was “At least he didn’t live to be such an embarrassment, like Paul.” Well, maybe not the party line, but it’s been said. But here’s the thing- Paul’s still making good albums.

Over at Slate, there’s an article about the new 983-page biography of The Beatles that basically says, “What is there that we don’t already know?”

It makes some good points. Anyway, here’s one of my favorite Lennon solo songs. It sucks that he’s dead, and sucks more that he’s dead because a lunatic shot him.
