Two others whom I consider great entertainers died this day:
In 1981, actress Natalie Wood drowned in a boating accident off Santa Catalina Island, Calif., at age 43.
In 1986, actor Cary Grant died in Davenport, Iowa, at age 82.
In a somewhat related yet much more downbeat attitude, I've posted a thing on mrbrianepstein - about how I can't help feeling about the tributes going on these couple weeks. Just humor the old Eppylover, okay?
Anyone who thinks the Later Lennon was anti-semetic, does not know he got the words and idea for "GIVE PEACE A CHANCE" from one marvelously hip Rabbi!
Nu? So, you doubt it, see the story here!
Lennon set up equipment in his room to record the song. At one stage he planned to release it under the name “John Lennon and the Flaming Red Rabbi”. But others in and around the hotel heard of the plan.
So instead of just Lennon and Feinberg singing, others, including Ono, Timothy Leary, the LSD guru, Petula Clark (the singer), Derek Taylor (who was press officer for Apple Records), and some members of the Canadian Radha Krishna temple, all joined in.
