May Pang Posts Sweet Remembrance of Home She Shared with John Lennon on What Would Have Been His 80th Birthday


May Pang has allowed me to reproduce this piece from her website this morning. John Lennon would have been 80 today had an assassin not taken his life two months after he turned 40. There are tributes all over the internet. May and John lived together in 1973-74, famously, and she has been a devoted and loving torch bearer.

What would John make of our current situation? He’d be out protesting, leading the Resistance, organizing concerts, doing everything he could to make the world a better place and rid us of Donald Trump’s insidious cancer of a presidency.

Celebrate John Lennon today, play his music, remember him.
