John Lennon in NYC

Many thanks to the always great Zen at Debonair Debacles for giving the heads up to an exhibit opening this month at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex here in NYC. It's called "JOHN LENNON: The New York City Years" and, obviously, it's about his post-Beatles/Yoko Ono/hippie-free love period that tragically ended one day in 1980. Apparently this exhibit will include lots of his artifacts from that time including his handwritten lyrics!

It's hard to remember but John Lennon lived here for many years and became quite the New Yorker. It ways also during this period that he wrote probably his greatest song, "Imagine", and engaged in anti-Vietnam activities that almost led to his deportation.

I really hope to check out this exhibit, it looks fascinating.
