Remembering Lennon

“We’re selling this peace thing like soap,” John Lennon told an interviewer in this 1969 interview. It was 29 years ago today that the ex-Beatle was killed outside his New York apartment building.

Twenty-nine years later, does anyone still care on days other than the anniversary of Lennon’s death? Apparently so. The New York Times profiles Gary dos Santos, who drifts in an out of homelessness as the self-appointed mayor of Strawberry Fields.

  • Bob, there is a film you might be interested in learning more about called The Mayor of Strawberry Fields. It’s about Gary’s life’s work to preserve Lennon’s message of peace.

    We will be premeiring the film in Minneapolis on January, 6.
