Instant Karma

John Lennon would have turned 67 in 2007. If alive, he could well be at the forefront of bringing peace to Darfur, where more than half a million have died from violence and disease during four years of rebel discord. So to create awareness of the ongoing conflict, Amnesty International (with permission from Yoko Ono) has mined Lennon's solo work and rounded up nearly two dozen current artists to reinterpret the music, which spans the ex-Beatle's entire post-band catalog (plus a pair from while the Fab Four were still in business).

Release Date: June 2, 2007

Jackson Browne singing, "Oh, My Love" should be amazing. [cringe] who in the world says "Fab Four"? [/cringe]

Fab Four is a leftover from the 60s.
John Lennon is one of my heroes. If only, if only.....

You're preaching to the choir, Julie! I hated that phrase in the 60s and I still hate it now. While I'm at it, I never liked the word "Hippie" either. We always thought it was a bit silly in the 60s.

Hippy always goes with Dippy in my mind.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
