[John Lennon] evoked something very powerful with very few words. Strawberry Fields Forever. I Am the Walrus. In My Life. Norwegian Woods. Little stories that are enigmatic but very powerful.
Paul Simon on fine lyricists such as John Lennon and Bob Dylan.
“And the two of us
Went to this bar
And we stayed to close the place
And every song we played
Was for the Late Great Johnny Ace”
Lyrics from “The Late Great Johnny Ace” by Paul Simon
In memory of John Lennon (October 9, 1940 - December 8, 1980)
Quote from the Tony Schwartz interview with Paul Simon in the February 1984 Playboy magazine.
