I did not know that his middle name was Winston!

You are missed John Lennon...rest in peace.

Sorta.  (Middle-aged, and old too though.) 
Good then we're eventually recycled ... maybe some really swell music will come 'round again from all the greats "out there" ... 
Or at least one can only hope for better harmony ... on all levels.

I'd venture to say that John Lennon's music and persona will outlast even the great Elvis.  Elvis wasn't, after all, on the president's hit list.  He even got some kind of presidential medal or reward from Nixon for his anti-drug message, shortly before he OD'd.  Life's funny that way.

"Well bless my soul / What's wrong with me? / I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree / ..."

I knew Elvis was anti-Beatle, but it escaped me that he asked to be a soldier in the War on Drugs (apparently he was high on prescription pills while in the White House) and even presented a Colt .45 (gun, not malt liquor) to Tricky Richard.  Thanks for sharing, buzorro.   

Other interesting bits about Elvis (e.g., his first paid gig was third billing to Slim Whitman?!):
