LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-JULY 29, 2019…IT WAS 53 YEARS AGO TODAY THAT “DATEBOOK” PUBLISHED MAUREEN CLEAVE’S INTERVIEW WITH JOHN LENNON WHERE HE REVEALED:
“We’re more popular than Jesus now. I don’t know which will go first – rock & roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.
THIS ONE STATEMENT ALONE SET OFF CHRISTIANS WHO REACTED WITH OUTRAGE, ORGANIZING “BEATLE BONFIRES” BURNING THE GROUP’S RECORDS AND ANYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH THE BAND.
HERE WAS AN INTERVIEW THAT WAS DONE LATER CONCERNING HIS QUOTE
HERE’S A NUTCASE PROTESTING ! WTF WAS WRONG WITH SOCIETY THAT THIS WAS A GROUP OR A REPRESENTATIVE ORGANIZATION TO PUT ON THE NEWS AS A COUNTER OPINION !? THE HYPOCRISY THAT PEOPLE WERE OFFENDED BY LENNON’S COMMENTS AND PROTESTED THE BEATLES, AND THERE WAS NO OUTRAGE THAT THIS LUNATIC WAS ON THE NEWS AND THERE WAS NO BACKLASH TO THIS BIGOT ON THE NEWS BLOWS MY MIND !!
