    Default Would John Lennon have Come?

    Do you think that John Lennon would have come back to Liverpool and gave his support to the City of Culture project?

    Dunno?

    John never really came here much in his later years, though yoko is said to have talked about John going on about Liverpool forever, and how he was going to take her there.

    Maybe 2008 may have been the time he did?

    I would have liked George to have been here, Thats one guy i would have liked to have met

    John couldn't leave America until his Green Card was processed. There was a lot of stink about it, he was seen as too Anti-War for the US Government.

    He had just got American citizenship when he was murdered, and had plans in step for a return to the UK.

    Hello Gerry

    John went through a very angry period after the Beatles split up, when he and Yoko went through the primal scream therapy and he put out the album with the lyrics directed to Paul, "How do you sleep" and putting down "silly love songs." And then of course he went into his radical mode that got him in trouble with Nixon and U.S. Immigration but by 1980 and the time he and Yoko recorded "Double Fantasy," just before he was murdered he had, I think, already mellowed and was photographed wearing his Quarry Bank tie. So I think if he was still alive now, yes, I do think that John would have liked to come home to support the City of Culture project and to perform for the people of Liverpool. For me, the fact that he wore his Quarry Bank tie also tells me that he was not as anti-Quarry Bank as Yoko says he was.

    Thanks for all you views folks.

    I never got to see the Beatles live but would hope that John would have sorted out his problems and would have been proud to return to his beautiful home town.

    Good to see that Yoko is coming and no doubt John will be with her in spirit on her trip.
