I’m still in NYC and the other night, I watched a biography about David Geffen. He is a business magnate, producer, and film studio executive. It was his record company that produced Double Fantasy, John Lennon’s last album.
I have read that Double Fantasy was not well received initially, that it was a step back by an artist who had already retired. Of course, fate intervened.
The record released November 17, 1980, less than a month before John Lennon was killed.
NYC will always connect me with John Lennon, and among the noise and turbulence of the past week, both here and in the rest of the world, I’m slowing it down, as I imagine Lennon would have when he wrote this song.
Enjoy and have a peaceful week,
