There's something sadly ironic in the fact that John Lennon spent a good part of the 70's telling everyone how wonderful the US was, and what a complete sh*thole he thought the UK was, and yet at the same time the US government was trying to have him thrown out.

If if loved it so much, then why on earth would they want to have him deported? Hmmm, the plot thickens...

John Lennon protested against war through non-violence. I think there's a lesson there for everyone. He was following in the footsteps of Ghandi.

He was quite critical of the US government. It was the people and the places that he loved about the US.

I always thought she had a face like a flan. Her singing defies description - something like a butchered whale in the throes of a death orgasm. I'm sure she's very nice though.

According to Paul McCartney she can be difficult. Though I guess the strains within the Beatles may be the cause of that.
