FAMOUS PEOPLE KILLED BY ILLUMINATI 1.) Michael Jackson (Cardiac arrest, Homicide=?) Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, just days before his comeback concerts were scheduled to take place in London. Jackson is thought to have been a member of the Illuminati until he started speaking out against them. Before his death, Jackson began to speak out against the powers that be and their need to control everything in the music industry. He also stated that there was a conspiracy to defame him by labeling him a "freak" and a "child-molester." Michael's sister La Toya Jackson said that her brother frequently talked about how "they were trying to kill him." 2.) JOHN LENNON (Ballistic trauma, Hypovolemia, Assassination=?) John Lennon was seen as a threat to many people in power. The INS even attempted to deport him, and the FBI had him under surveillance. Lennon frequently spoke out against the evils of industry, and it is believed that his assassin Mark David Chapman was under Illuminati mind control when he kil ...

A bittersweet autograph score today... I barely missed out on getting Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Babe Ruth & Princess Di, but I scored a Tiger Woods, so not a total loss... but I'd MUCH rather have Hendrix or Lennon... :-/
I was talking to a client and the topic of music came up. He asked me what I believe the 10 most inspirational songs were and why. I thought it would be fun to do the tag game. So if I tag you do the same if you want. So here we go: 1. Imagine- John Lennon (I completely understand his dream. It is too bad society has to be divided on social constructs like religion, race, and ect... I'm a dreamer too John). 2. The Hurricane- Bob Dylan (The song tells the story of Ruben Carter who was wrongfully convicted of murder because of the color of his skin and his refusal to fall into the societal stereotype that the culture had on African Americans at the time. I don't care what people say, race/religion/cultural differences/socioeconomic status/and ect...DO PLAY A ROLE IN HOW YOU ARE TREATED IN THE WORLD. This song helped teach me that lesson). 3. Snow Castles Made of Sand- Jimi Hendrix (really any song by Jimi would do. He revolutionized how the guitar would be played. I just picked one of my favorite so ...
This is a time when we need people like John Lennon, Jim Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix
The most important musicians of the 20th century is Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jimmy Page, and Jim Morrison.
What is with all my favourite singers all being dead? Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon...list goes on
When Jerry Garcia died, he woke up and found himself on a stage on which a number of instruments were set up. A door offstage opened and in walked Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, John Lennon, Otis Redding and Buddy Holly. Each musician picked up his favorite instrument and began tuning up. Jerry walked up to Jimi and said, "Man, so this is what heaven is like." Jimi looked at him and said, "Heaven? You think this is heaven?" At that moment, Karen Carpenter walked in, took her seat behind the drums, and called out, "Okay guys, 'Close to You.' One, two, three, four!"
I've got Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Jim Morrison casually watching. But John is definitely distracted

Elvis is dead, Picasso is dead Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin are dead Marilyn Monroe is dead- however... Jesus is Alive Brando is dead, James Brown is dead Princess Di and John Lennon are dead Biggie and Pac are dead- however Jesus is Alive Verse 1 Give praise to King Jesus, the blessed Son Victorious, glorious resurrected One To Him belongs the power, glory and honor Ascended where He sits at the right hand of the Father At the cross He made atonement- His people He saved After three days He was raised in defeat of the grave By faith the elect behold Him, His scepter is golden He must have been hot or slippery because death couldn't hold Him The spotlight is on today's icons In a thousand years, nobody will care- their light's gone But at that time, Christ will still shine bright He's not in the limelight- He IS the limelight Criminal minded, you've been blinded Looking for the body of Jesus?

I posted this response on someone else's thread but I thought I'd post it again when I decided to share... Freddie Mercury, Elvis, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and Bob Marley. Plus I'd love to have Terry Kath, John Denver and Tommy Bolin back too even though they're not pictured. In exchange they can take, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Kanye, Britney Spears, and at least two or three dozen of today's "pop, rock, hip hop stars". They can even have American Idol and all it's stars too.
If they can have a hallogram of MJ, they can have one for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, George Harrison, etc

I've always wanted to do a drawing of a bar where all the people (including the band) are deceased musicians. People like Jimi Hendrix, John Bonham, Phil Lynott, Bon Scott, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Cliff Burton, Dimebag Daryll, Jerry Garcia, Buddy Holly, John Lennon, etc. Just always seemed such a daunting task - trying to decide who would be in the band, who would be patrons, who would be bar staff.

Happy Birthday: Danny Krivit (Apr. 10, 1957) Growing up in Greenwich Village, New York City, in the 60's, Danny was surrounded by music. His mother was an accomplished Jazz singer and his father was the manager of legendary Jazz trumpeter Chet Baker before going on to open up “The Ninth Circle”, a Village hot spot, where Danny worked as a boy. It was here that Danny met some of the most influential people in the music scene; Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Mingus, John Lennon & Yoko Ono, amongst others. His home was also a hotbed of musical inspiration, with The Mothers of Invention living down the hall, and Sid Bernstein (Manager of The Rascals) living upstairs, the Rascals would regularly pop down to the Krivit household to practice their future hits on the piano. Starting his professional DJ career in 1971 Danny is currently celebrating 43 years as a NYC DJ & has enjoyed many highlights, just to name a few: Like the summer of 2003 at Museum Of Modern Art's PS1 in NY, playing for an incredible 5 ...

I think I'm Jimi Hendrix, I think I'm Kurt Cobain, John Lennon gone insane. Someone take this gun before I blow out my brains.
When I think of the list of all my film and music heroes (Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Ian Curtis, Richey Edwards, Heath Ledger, Marlon Brando, Bon Scott, Marc Bolan, Jim Morrison) it makes me feel sad that these people (through one reason or other, own fault or not) are no longer with us. What fills me with even more despair is the fact that Justin Beiber still exists.
Hearing Graham Nash talk about his experiences with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix is mind blowing. Seriously.
I find that today, (the 4th anniversary of Jimmy Sullivan's passing), is more a day for fans than it is for family and friends. It is something that I see again and again with fans and celebrities. And I'm as guilty of this as anyone. I can tell you the days on which Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon died, but can't remember their birthdays. Their deaths affected me profoundly while their birthdays came and went in silence - at least to me. Conversely, if you actually knew the person well, the anniversary of their passing can be too much to bear. We occupy our mind, (as best we can), with other things and then tip a glass back on their birthdays - remembering the better times. Perhaps that's the psychological reasoning behind it. I'm sure someone smarter than me could explain it better. So this is not in judgement of anyone. I get it. And I truly appreciate the comments, emails, etc. They mean a great deal to me and the extended A7X family. But if I don't e-mail or comment back, please understand that I choose ...

Lee Harvey Oswald didn't kill Kennedy. One man did not kill Martin Luther King, Jr. Drugs did not kill Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, or Jim Morrison!! Syd Barrett was NOT crazy!! Mark David Chapman is not soley resposnsible for the death of John Lennon!! And Kurt Cobain DID NOT KILL HIMSELF!!!
The Alice Cooper concert was excellent! His band was fantastic. He did a tribute to some of his heros Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jim Morrison and Keith Moon. The encore was Schools Out. The tour only has two more show. Costa Mesa Ca. and Las Vegas.
Jaden Smith tryna be John Lennon, Tupac, The Dalai Lama, Yoko Ono, Jimi Hendrix, Ian Connor, Huey Freeman and Tyga all at the same time.
Alice Cooper was off the hook last night at the Emerald Queen Casino. He said a big, "Hello Hooray," to a packed out showroom to start off the evening. With pyro technics included. He would whip out a sword full of money as he sang, "Billion Dollar Babies." He would throw necklaces of diamonds to the song, "Dirty Diamonds," Jason and Frankenstein would pay everybody a visit in a big way as Alice would unleash his stage theatrics to the audience in attendance to the songs, He's Back (Man Behind The Mask), and Feed My Frankenstein. Everybody was wowed at what came out. Including me. The guillotine would make an appearance as Alice would loose his head for his crimes of escaping out of his straight jacket and strangling the nurse during, "The Ballad Of Dwight Fry." He would pay tribute to Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Keith Moon in songs they had written and performed. He would bring the show to a close with his anthemic song, "Schools Out" with bubbles, big balloons, and confetti included. A ...
you're right lad, Foo's aswell! But think of MJ, Bob Marley, John Lennon, Whitney Houston, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain...

John Lennon - Hologram Museum To Open In London Thursday, October 17, 2013 Rock fans will get the chance to perform 'live' with dead heroes including John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury and Kurt Cobain when a hologram museum opens in London. Bosses of the Music Hall of Fame in Camden, north London are planning to use the latest technology to create lifelike 3D images of some of the world's most famous late and living stars. Visitors will then be able to join their favourite musician for a performance, which will be recorded onto Dvd for posterity. The innovative idea was sparked after a hologram of dead rapper Tupac Shakur was used during a performance by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at last year's (12) Coachella festival in California. The project's manager Lee Bennett tells the London Evening Standard, "You could be transported back to a specific moment of music or play with artists who are no longer alive, even playing back-to-back with a hologram.
The XPN top 885 songs of the new Millenium is a huge let down. The top ten has been brutal other than wilco, Bruce and white stripes...under protest. William Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes at number two, they f$&suck. Music is in a huge state of disarray. John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, John Bonham, you name the legend, turning in their graves.
Born in 1906, Roosevelt Sykes built his reputation playing in seedy dive bars in the 1940's. A live album of one of his last recordings in 1977 at the Blind Pig - Ann Arbor, MI (a historic venue where Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon graced the stage) has finally been released. Check out the audio and video below!
October 11, 2003 - The July, 1954 studio session for Elvis Presley's debut single "That's All Right" was voted the most pivotal moment in Rock history by Mojo magazine readers. Bob Dylan's switch from acoustic to electric guitars in 1965 came second, ahead of the release of The Clash's debut single "White Riot" in 1977. The Beatles first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 was fourth and The Rolling Stones' release of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" placed fifth. Releases and performances by Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, John Lennon and Led Zeppelin were also included in the Top 10.

John Lennon of the Beattles was raised by an aunt. After he became rich and famous he visited her one day. He rode up in a Rolls Royce and brought her a sterling silver jewelry box as a gift. The aunt was delighted. On the backside of the box lid was an inscription that read, "You'll never get anywhere with your music, John.", something she often told him before he became famous. On another note: it was Little Richard of Rock and Roll fame, that gave the Beattles their first big break. At the same time Jimi Hendrix, 18 yrs. old, was playing in his band. James Brown also sang in his band. He also help usher in the Rolling Stones.
"THE WISEST MEN FOLLOW THEIR OWN DIRECTION." - Euripides What did Thomas Edison, Vincent Van Gogh, Maya Angelou, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Steve Jobs, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Jimi Hendrix, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln and Malcolm X all have in common? What's shared by all of them- and key for many who we call "gifted" or "genius" is that their learning was highly self-directed. They didn't develop their most critical skills in schools, much of what they learned did not come directly from teachers, and wasn't measured by standardized test scores. Yet they were exceptional learners, who learned by imitation and absorption from talented people who went before them, then applied themselves tirelessly to what motivated and interested them. Steve Jobs went to college and quit after 6 months, though he stuck around the campus and took classes that interested him for awhile longer. Much that he learned after that came from work experience, independent study, collaboration with others and his own self-direct ...
ON THIS DAY: SEPTEMBER 18TH… In 1964…The Beatles were in a bomb scare as a phone call said there was an explosive on their flight to Dallas. It turned out to be a false alarm. In 1967…The Beatles shot the striptease scene for The Magical Mystery Tour. In 1970…Jimi Hendrix died in London. He was 27. There were various theories as to how he died, but the coroner determined that it was “inhalation of vomit due to barbiturate intoxication.” In 1971…Pink Floyd became the first rock group to play the Classical Music Festival in Montreux, Switzerland. They performed “Atom Heart Mother.” In 1972…In London, the Rock at the Oval festival kicked off. Headliners were The Who, but the bill was filled out by Mott the Hoople and The Faces, whose Kenny Jones would years later sub for the deceased Keith Moon on drums. In 1974…John Lennon was the guest DJ on New York’s WNEW-FM. In 1976…At Don Kirshner’s Rock Music Awards, Fleetwood Mac won Best Group and Best Album for Fleetwood Mac. Peter Framp ...

Just hanging out with John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis. What are YOU doing today?
From Alice Cooper's show at Rama!!! I like the tributes he did for Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Keith Moon!!! INCREDIBLE show!!! MUCH better than I expected!!!
I heard something on the radio the other day, about a rock 'n roll "all-star team". The idea is simple: select your favorite musicians to fill each spot in a "supergroup". (Although I believe the best groups are made from a unique combination of artists that together, are greater than the sum of their parts; I'll play along...) *** Jagger-- VOCALS, harmonica, guitar, keyboards. (Active: 1961 - Present.) English singer, songwriter, frontman, and entertainer extraordinaire. Bob Dylan-- GUITAR, vocals, harmonica, keyboards. (1961 - Present.) The greatest American singer/songwriter of all-time. Period. Jimi Hendrix-- Lead Guitar, vocals. (1963 - 1970.) Legendary American musician & bandleader who revolutionized the role of electric guitar in popular music. RIP. Paul Mccartney-- BASS, vocals, guitar, keyboards, drums. (1957 - Present.) Ex-Beatle and one half (with John Lennon) of the greatest songwriting duo ever. [McCartney was also a "member" of Rolling Stone magazine's 1969 hoax-supergroup, " The Masked Ma ...
July 2nd: On this Day 1956, Elvis Presley recorded 'Hound Dog' at RCA Studios, New York. Take 31 being the version they released. This was the first time The Jordanaires worked with Presley. 1962, Jimi Hendrix was honourably discharged from the 101st Airborne Paratroopers, after breaking his ankle during his 26th and final parachute jump. 1965, The Beach Boys and Sam the Sham appeared at the Community Concourse, San Diego, California. 1966, Frank Sinatra went to No.1 on the US Singles Chart with 'Strangers In The Night'. The song was taken from the film 'A Man Could Get Killed'. Also a No.1 in the UK. 1966, David Bowie and The Lower Third appeared at The Lion Hotel in Warrington, England, (they were paid £30 for the gig). Also appearing was The Powerhouse which featured Eric Clapton Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood and Paul Jones. 1969, Working at Abbey Road Paul Mccartney recorded ‘Her Majesty’.

The best collection of musicians to make an album was The Masked Marauders. A super group of the era's leading rock and roll musicians, including Bob Dylan, *** Jagger, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Jeff Beck, Paul Mccartney and others. I saw them live !

And Rick Nielsen gave guitar to John Lennon and has some Jimi Hendrix guitars!!! Omg hes so amazing
Rabbi discussing her initial meeting with Zac, when he was asked if he could invite any 3 people in history to his Bar Mitzvah. He picked Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Will Farrell. Love this kid and so happy to celebrate him today!
I wish people would stop idolizing celebrities. John Lennon was abusive to his children and unfaithful to his women. Jimi Hendrix was a violent drunk. Steve Jobs once denied paternity of his daughter and forced the mother to live on welfare. Bob Dylan is socially retarded, like an ornery Mr. Bean. Appreciate people for their work, but please, stop putting them on a pedestal. Chances are that they are normal, imperfect human beings like the rest of us, but unless we know them on a personal level it is silly to be attached to anything but their work, or art, or whatever it is they do.
If i could bring three people back to life it'd be John Lennon, Keith Moon and Jimi Hendrix
That's it! Unless Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain resurrect themselves to form a supergroup, I am done shooting from the mixer. It is a total waste of time, when will the artistes management realise we are there to make them look good, beyond a joke!
Pegasus has the day off (thanks for pointing that out, Valerie!) but we're gonna ask you to join us in taking a moment or two to remember those who have gone before: family, friends, vets. Without them we would not be who we are today. We're also gonna remember members of the music family who have so contributed to our lives and whose songs we play today. I'm gonna list some who have passed before us, and feel free (because you can feel free) to add those of your own. Here we go off the top of my head: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, George Harrison, Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, Brian Jones, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, the Big Bopper, Elvis, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Ronnie Van Zandt, Duane Allman, John Denver, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. As Jimi said, "I won't see ya again in this world...see you in the next one. Don't be late. Don't be late." Love you all.
Need I explain the appeal of bad *** rock-stars with oodles of attitude and smashed or burned guitars on stage? Picture Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplis, *** Jagger, Roger Daltrey, Freddie Mercury, Bono, The Edge, Pete Townshend, Axle Rose, Donald Fagen, Walter Becker, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Steve Tyler, Johnny Rotten, and, of course, the wannabes. John Lennon did not have to have an attitude to be awesome. IMO.
Reading a magazine about John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Randy Roads, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Why do the good ones die so young?
Still my fave Saxon song of all time, a tribute to the fallen legends of rock n roll! John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, Dimebag Darrell, Mark Reale, Ronnie James Dio, Cliff Burton.and now Jeff Hanneman :( R.I.P. the legends - we will remember! \m/ \m/
I have a theory that John Lennon, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon and John Bonham are all on an island making an epic song.
i really wish wise musicians like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury, Jaco Pastorius and John Lennon were still alive.
Heaven? Can we trade One Direction for John Lennon, George Harrison, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison?
It occurred to me that many more American rock guitarists die early than do British guitarists. So I went to Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists and noted those who died before age 55 or so. Here's what I found: American dead: Dime Bag Darrell, Buddy Holly, Kurt Cobain, Robert Johnson, Clarence White, Jerry Garcia, Mike Bloomfield, Randy Rhoads, Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix. British dead: John Lennon, *** Ronson, George Harrison. Dead American guitarists not making the list include Roy Buchanan, Danny Gatton, Johnny Thunders, and Tommy Bolin. The only other British guitarist I could think of was Paul Kossoff. Weird.
Which famous person from the past would you most like... — Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Karl Roy, Ste...
Mother's is paying top $$$ for your used records! We're paying extra for the following artists: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, The Doors, John Lennon & Frank Zappa.
In the 1960's when USA was launching a war with Vietnam, the Civil Liberties and Peace Movement emerged. Jimi Hendrix wrote "Machine Gun", Phil Ochs wrote "I ain't marching anymore", Bob Dylan wrote "Blowin in the Wind", John Lennon wrote "Give Peace a Chance." The Doors wrote "Unknown Soldier". There is a global crisis going on, a war of an unprecedented kind. The land, water, people...everyone and everything is under attack. The artists in this day and age Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift...etc are singing about broken hearts and lost love. While Gangster Rap is preaching about *** thugs, drugs, violence." Louis Reil prophesied, "My people will sleep for 100 years, and when they awake, it will be the artists who give them back their spirits." I don't think he was talking about Dr. Dre or Britney Spears. What the world needs is a musical revolution.
Mike Love on the left & George Harrison whose birthday would've been today on the right. Happy Birthday George, 2/25! I hope ur having fun and jamming with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison up there in the big H !
101 facts you never knew about music: Part 1 1. Leo Fender , inventor of the Stratocaster and Telecaster, couldn't play the guitar. 2. John Lennon 's eyesight was so poor that he was legally blind without his glasses. 3. Noel Gallagher , Gary Moore and Mark Knopfler write left-handed but play guitar as if right-handers. Coldplay's Chris Martin plays guitar and draws right-handed, but he writes left-handed. And the world's most-famous 'left-handed' player, Jimi Hendrix , wrote with his right hand. 4. Kiss's Gene Simmons can speak Hungarian. 5. Queen's multi-millionaire drummer RogerTaylor was once spotted in Guildford's Sainsbury's supermarket filling out a National Lottery ticket. Question: why? 6. The surname of the late Robert Moog, inventor of the legendary Moog Synthesiser, is actually pronounced 'Mogue' (rhyming with 'rogue'). But everyone has said 'Moog' for so long, no-one bothers to correct it anymore. 7. Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich is a keen modern art collector. In 2008 he auctioned his"last B ...
there were amazing shots of John Lennon, Chaka Khan, B-52s, Jimi Hendrix, etc. I want to relive that night.
Thinking about all the music that's died. Syd Barrett, John Lennon, Rick Wright, Nick Drake, Paul Kossoff, Ian Dury, David Crosby, Jim Morrison, John Bonham, Jimi Hendrix and worst of all George Harrison. God I'm feeling old...
Iain Gough I don't really believe in god, or heaven... The only problem with this is I won't get to meet my heroes, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Richard pryor, Bill Hicks, George Calin... I would love to hear what they have to say about life today...
Researching the resurrection of Tupac and came across this "Perhaps, instead of Live Aid, some bold entrepreneur could stage Dead Aid, the greatest bill ever seen in this world or the next: Elvis, Frank Sinatra, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Tupac Shakur, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin.." Dead Aid... It's the future
1969, The Beatles (with Billy Preston), played their lunchtime rooftop gig on top of the Apple building on Savile Row in London. Lasting for just over 40 minutes it was the last time The Beatles performed live. The played ‘Get Back’, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’, ‘The One After 909’ and ‘Dig A Pony’. Traffic was brought to a standstill as crowds of people gathered below and watched from windows in nearby buildings. John Lennon ended the performance by saying “I’d like to say ‘Thank you’ on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition.” 1982, American blues guitarist, singer Sam Lightnin' Hopkins died of cancer aged 70. Influenced Bob Dylan, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.

A string of artist including Elton John, Norah Jones, James Taylor, E ...
"THE SCOTCH of St James was one of the single most important and influential venues in London during the swinging 60’s. Some might say it played a pivotal role in creating it. THE SCOTCH of St James was the home and hangout of many a household name, such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, The Who, The Animals and many more. It was the place where any musical artists of note or merit would hangout or perform in order to touch the zeitgeist of the time. The Rare Book Shop, next door to THE SCOTCH once had an exhibition by artist Yoko Ono and was attended by Paul Mccartney who brought his band mate John Lennon and the rest, is history."

RIP Ronnie Van Zant. I know you’re up there with all the other great musicians who also died way too young: Duane Allman, John Belushi, Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, Michael Jackson, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury… Meanwhile we’re stuck down here with the likes of Justin Bieber, Barry Manilow and Nicki Minaj. :-(
All right. It's time to have a little fun. Please READ THIS CAREFULLY. If you could bring back to life any dead musician to see in concert, who would it be? Please do not list anyone who is still alive. We posted this question on some of our venue pages and tons of people were answering with musicians who are still alive. Mine would be John Lennon, with Jimi Hendrix right behind him Who's yours?
Why good musicians like Syd Barrett, Brian Jones, Keith Moon, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, George Harrison, Sid Vicious all are now dead? :/
In guitar : Keith Richards is my mentor, Jimi Hendrix is my dad, John Lennon is my perspective, and Brian May is my MASTER /(•̅_•̅ )

John Lennon: An Appreciation Preface: Imagine Paul singing, to the tune of Sgt. Peppers, "It was 32 years ago, today/ They murdered the best who ever was, to play..." There is not much new left to be said about John Lennon. Suffice it to say that, for me, he is the greatest single figure in pop music history. Murdered at age 40, just as he was undergoing a renaissance of creativity that surely would have carried him through middle age with vitality and dignity, the loss of his art to humanity is incalculable. I’m not exaggerating when I state that this sentiment is shared by millions. Go to Youtube, watch his videos, and read the comments. People are still genuinely angry, hurt, and saddened over his death. No other musician who died prematurely, including giants like Otis Redding, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, even Jimi Hendrix and Charlie Parker; none of them have managed to stay in the mind of popular consciousness like the figure of John Lennon. Perhaps it is the fact that he was assassinated, while th ...

Rob & I saw Alice Cooper last night & the ole man can still ROCK!!! Great show, he even did tribute to Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon & Keith Moon...surprisingly he did a good job too!!! Great night, even came home with $50 extra in my pocket;) can't beat that! Now if it would STOP raining or I was in Florida my life would be complete;) love, hugs & peace
Saw Alice Cooper tonight and he put on another good show. Alice knows how to keep the music driving and played hit after hit. At one point he found himself in the Rock N Roll Graveyard and proceeded to sing "Break On Through To The Other Side" in honour of Jimmy Morrison (this was a rockin' version), then "Revolution" for John Lennon, then "Foxy Lady" for Jimi Hendrix and "My Generation" for Keith Moon. The show was openned by Geoff Tate and unfortunately the crowd wasn't into him and I felt bad for him. He didn't seem very impressed by the crowd reaction... Sometimes I ask myself why I am going to see Alice for the umpteenth time but after another one of his shows, I"m glad that I went again.
Can't wait for all of us to explore the universe in our own way without having small minds tell us how to view it. I hope I was able to at least make the truth clear and simple so we can stop going in circles and move forward. I want to mention again the people that have helped me free my mind and be able to write the poetry that has caused this movement... Bill Hicks, Terence McKenna, John Lennon, Charlie Chaplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Andy Kaufman, Thomas Paine, Stefani Germanotta, Frida, Andy and Lana Wachowski, James Cameron and my psychedelic experiences that cleaned up the garbage fed to me my whole life. And by getting rid of those viruses, I was able to find God again in nature, in myself.
I wouldn't go to China for a reincarnated group of John Lennon, George Harrison, Keith Moon and Jimi Hendrix
What If Kurt Cobain Jim Morrison, John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix were still alive there would be no such thing called ''bad Music''
Why are John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Guandi, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, JFK, FDR, John Bonham, Martin Luther King Jr, and the guy that invented the muppets, dead but Toby keith still makes albums. If you are going to murder someone have some taste.
The best rocker is the dead rocker.For example; John Lennon,Elvis Presley,Kurt Cobain,Jimi Hendrix...
Listening to Eyedea & Abilities. It's such a shame when you realize that we'll never see how good Eyedea could've gotten. His late stuff is so innovative, and he was just starting to perfect his style. A life cut short is so tragic, and you could say the same for a lot of other musicians. Where would Led Zeppelin have gone if Jon Bonham never died in 1980? What would've become of Jimi Hendrix had he not OD'ed? How legendary would John Lennon be if he were still alive today? I guess we should just be happy that these people were around in the first place, and left the impression they did...
Dear lord, You can have Justin Bieber, Rebecca Black, Miley Cyrus, Jonas brothers and Selena Gomez. But can we have Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, Tupac and Dimebag Darrel back please?
They r tryin 2 create a New World Order, which is one world wide govt. ruled by antichrist. People will have no rights or freedoms. When the antichrist comes 2 power he will bring peace 2 the world and he will appear as a good guy. Then he will murder millions of people. Everybody will forced 2 recieve the mark of the beast. (RIFD microchip). We r very close 2 it. The 9/11 attacks were planned out by the government. An excuse 2 attack Iraq 2 bring forth a New World Order. Many music artists r used by the Illuminati, 2 send out corrupt and satanic messages in their music, and many of them have sold their souls 2 the devil 4 money and fame. They will award u if u go along with them. If u go against them then they will try 2 destroy ur image. Much like Michael Jackson and Tupac. Bob Marley, John Lennon, Pimp C, Michael Jackson, Tupac, Jimi Hendrix, JFK, Martin Luther King JR, and more were all killed by the Illuminati. Many worlds leaders have called 4 a New World Order, it also been mentioned many times in ...
I always wondered if Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, George Harrison were still alive, what the music would be like today

5 People that I would bring back from the dead.. 1. John Lennon 2. Heath Ledger 3. Jimi Hendrix 4. Paul Gray 5. Cole Dando Weird thought.. i kno.. who would you?
However, the top 7 on NME's Ultimate Icon list includes John Lennon, Alex Turner, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix. This pleases me.
How stupid is this poll!? The Greatest Rock Icon in the period of NME's existence was righteously declared to be John Lennon. Nice one. Except look at who he beat, and shake your head in bewilderment. Liam Galagher SECOND? OMG... "Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher came second in the poll, with David Bowie in third and Alex Turner in fourth. Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain came fifth, Amy Winehouse came sixth, with Jimi Hendrix in seventh place. Morrissey ranked in eighth place, with Noel Gallagher in ninth and Ian Curtis in 10th place. Over 160,000 votes were cast in the poll, which ran for over six months and has taken place to celebrate NME’s 60th birthday."
Long live music as the following are not with us Jim Morrison,Jimi Hendrix,Curtis Mayfied,Ike Turner,Brian Jones,John Lennon,Syd Barrett RIP
God, please take Justin Bieber and One Direction and give us back Freddie Mercury,John Lennon,George Harrison,Jimi Hendrix,Jim Morrison...
Dear God In exchange for one direction please could you give us Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury, George Harrison and John Lennon
If only Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin and John Lennon were still alive..
Today in Music: 1956 - Elvis Presley made his first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show "Toast of the Town." He was shot from just the waist up during the performance. Elvis would make a total of three appearances on the show. 1967 - "Soul Man," by Sam & Dave, was released. 1969 - Jimi Hendrix made his U.S. television debut on "The *** Cavett Show." 1971 - John Lennon's LP "Imagine" was released.
Tonight at 420am, the bong rips are for Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and John Lennon. ;)
" There’s a lot of questions as to who I am. The name John Hendrixs derived from the first name of John Lennon from Liverpool, who was the lead singer of the Beatles. And Hendrixs comes from Jimi Hendrix from Seattle, who inspired a lot of rock musicians with his unorthodox creations. But who am I? I am both of them, I am John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix. To understand me, you must know them. Know that I live solely on art. ‘‘Life is Art.’’ Art is freedom of expression, misuse of the First Amendment."
On this day in 1970, A party was held to celebrate the official opening of 'Electric Ladyland' studios in New York City, New York. Artists who went on to record at the studio include: Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, AC/DC, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Frank Zappa and Guns N' Roses.
imagine if John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious and Joe Strummer was still alive, wow
I hope I dream about more great late musicians tonight. Hang w/ Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Tupac, and Chuck Brown.
When I die, I hope I can finally see a concert headlined by John Lennon, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison, and Frank Zappa -- with follow up performances by Kurt Cobain, Bon Scott, John Bonham, Brian Jones, both Tim and Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith, Hillel Slovak, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, Joe Strummer, and the complete Ramones. There could also be a freestyling group with Tupac, Biggie, Jam Master Jay, and Ad Rock, as well as a jazz combo with Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Max Roach, Paul Chambers, Bill Evans, and Monk. *** that would be worth seeing.
If I could travel back in time I would go back to 1970 and roll Jimi Hendrix on his side so he wouldn't die. The I would lay low until 1980 then I would roll John Bonham over so he wouldn't die. Then I would jump in between John Lennon and and Mark David Chapman. Than would be the end of me but I would do it.
My big bro is home before his final journey. When you get a chance Jack, pass on my best to Elvis, John Lennon, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joey Ramone, Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, Jimmy Johnstone (the Lisbon Lion) he might be with uncle Jimmy Johnson (that would be ironic) Ronnie Barker, Bon Scott, Dermot Morgan aka Father Ted, Bobby Robson, Sugar Ray Robinson, Rocky Marciano, Benny Lynch, John Candy, John Sullivan and the 96. And anyone else ive missed out x
i wish Jim Morrison was still alive. and Janis Joplin. and Jimi Hendrix. and John Lennon. and George Harrison. and Kurt Cobain. and and and
Anxiety! Flying to New Jersey tomorrow.I keep thinkin`" RITCHIE"! Things i like to see also in New York,John Lennon lived and died, Jimi Hendrix`s Electric Ladyland Studio, Anything else?
Just remembered I called u something like the reincarnation of John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix & Jesus after ur show
This Day in Music: June 21st 1966, Working at Abbey Road studios in London, The Beatles recorded from start to finish, a new John Lennon song “She Said She Said.” The song was reportedly based on a bizarre conversation that Lennon had with Peter Fonda while John and George Harrison were tripping on LSD. 1968, The Who appeared at Durham University, Durham, England. 1972, Led Zeppelin appeared at Denver Coliseum on their North American tour. 1975, Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore quit Deep Purple to form his own group, Rainbow. 1976, Touring North America for the first time, Wings played the last dates of their 31-date tour with three nights at the Los Angeles Forum. 1977, Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten was attacked in a brawl outside the live music venue Dingwalls in Camden, London. 1980, Police arrested The Stranglers after a concert at Nice University for allegedly starting a riot. 2000, 39-year-old Karen McNeil, who claimed she was the wife of Axl Rose and that she communicated with him telepathically, was jai ...
John Lennon was shot, Jimi Hendrix died way too young, Stevie Ray Vaughn died in a helicopter, and John Bohnham choked on his own vomit, yet the world can't figure out how to get rid of Niki Minaj.. There is something wrong
Success takes you where character cannot sustain you. The hardest thing to do is to be true to yourself, especially when everyone is watching. Fame is not what you think it is. From Muhammad Ali to Bob Marley. From Malcolm X to Jimi Hendrix. From Tupac Shakur to Dave Chappelle. Bruce Lee, Che Guevara, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Diana Princess of Wales, Martin Luther King Jr, John F. Kennedy, Yitzhak Rabin I have learned from all of them. The line in the sand has been drawn and the Illuminati is far more powerful then they ever told you. It's impressive how many more people nowadays are paying attention to why so many great men/women die young and why so many incredible ideas for revolution fade to black. Let's not forget Aaron Gabriel, Kenny Nolasco, Brenda Nolasco, Paris Williford, Brianne Hawkins, Nabeel Khan, and all of you I conspire with in the DMV: WE GOT WORK TO DO!
So glad it's summertime. Concert tickets so far this summer at Red Rocks include Jethro Tull, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris and Steve Martin. I'm waiting for tickets to go on sale for Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston!
Just had the best visit with Marty this weekend who took me to see the "Heavenly J's" in our little opera house downtown. OMG !! It's a tribute band to all the great musicians from the 60's & 70's who have since passed and whose name begins with a "J". So, we got to "hear" and "see" Jerry Garcia, John Lennon, Janis Jopln, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, John Denver, Jim Croce and James Brown all perform some of their greatest hits. They did a superb job with looks, voice and personalities. What an awesome blast from the past with a very dear friend!!
Dimebag Darrell, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis. With all of them gone, no wonder good music barely exists anymore.
The Gallery at Fossebridge, currently exhibiting art by John Lennon, Ronnie Wood and Jimi Hendrix
Instead of meeting with my family when I die, can I meet up with Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon, John Lennon and/or Davy Jones?
Now that they have this technology. They need to bring back. John Lennon, Elvis Presley. Jimi Hendrix. Randy Rhodes. Bob Marley& Kurt Cobain
What they did at coachella with making a 3d image of Tupac is nice. Just think of the possibilities, you can have a concert of dead artist Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Aaliyah, MJ, Biggie, Elvis, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, Ray Charles the list goes on and on, it would be something I would be interested in seeing.
wow they need to do that Tupac thing with Biggie, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and so many artists
such a trip to see. I wanna see Freddie Mercury, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, and Jimi Hendrix like this.
If they brought back 2Pac in hologram form then they should bring back Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, etc.
Local guitarists excluded, Here's a list of my favorite guitarists in no particular order, Who didn't make my top 15 and who shouldn't be on it. If you have an opinion as far as ranking them 1-15 that would be interesting too, or maybe top 5. Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Adam Jones, Randy Rhoads, David Gilmour, Buckethead, Dimebag Darrel, Eddie Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Tony Iommi, Joe Satriani, (John Lennon and George Harrison) count as one.
Imagine if Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Robert Johnson and Kurt Cobain were alive today.
