I love Soul, R+B, Electronic, and good pop. Really, the only thing I don’t listen to is country and heavy metal. I love Marvin Gaye, John Legend, Al Green, Fat Freddys Drop, Sade, Grace Jones, Bazoo Bijou, Prince, John Lennon, London Grammar, Daft Punk, Dr John, Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee, Gotye, and on it goes.
There were people who went for serious mind enhancement, like Jimi Hendrix or John Lennon, although I didn’t really need to do that. I was blessed with an incredibly fertile imagination.
I loved John Lennon, by the way.
I just shot John Lennon.
I’ve no problem with Neil Lennon. I’m thrilled for him to be interested in me. He tried to sign me for Bolton but football is football.
Lennon has an amazing ability to think before she speaks. She doesn’t have to constantly be talking. She just thinks, and when she speaks, it’s thoughtful. She’s very calm. I’m trying to learn that from her.
The Beatles never sounded intimidated by their idols. They never interpreted old rock; they simply played it as well and as joyfully as they knew how. On ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll,’ John Lennon does nothing but interpret old rock.
John Lennon was very irreverent and very intelligent.
I am not John Lennon; I never will be!
To be quite honest, John Lennon had questionable politics. There was a flip side. He was all peace and love, but he was a very violent character.
At the ‘L.A. Times,’ I always wanted to write about artists I thought were meaningful. So I interviewed Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Eminem, White Stripes. And I could understand how almost everybody I interviewed had a sense of artistry.
When I heard The Beatles, that was my turning point. They were like my mentors. You know, the funny thing about that, when I heard ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand,’ at first I said these guys are like a flash in the pan. But the second album, I had to take all that back. John Lennon – one of the greatest writers in the world.
John Lennon was definitely my favorite Beatle, hands down.
I willingly took John Lennon’s life. What I did was despicable.
Over the years, I’ve had to learn to play. For example, when ‘Lennon’ was on Broadway, I learned my way around the guitar chords because originally we were all going to play the instruments without a band.
A lot of the people I’d love to work with, like John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, aren’t alive, unfortunately.
Men have a lot less to write about, unless you’re somebody like Tom Waits or John Lennon. And the female voice is much more suited to melody. Men have this barky thing – we’re domesticated apes with a microphone.
There have never been a lot of female guitarists out there, so most of my influences were male. Acoustically, I followed Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon. Also, John Lennon and Paul McCartney – both incredible acoustic guitar players.
The band that made me want to be a musician in the first place was the Beatles. And I think John Lennon used to say something like, ‘We’re just a singing group,’ when he talked about the band. So that’s what I say about Mr. Big – we’re a singing group!
It’s a cliche, but John Lennon is my hero. He was so rebellious, so outspoken and so publicly opinionated, and I’m someone who’s so private. I suppose you admire people who have the qualities you wish you had.
I loved John Lennon. I read interviews, and whatever he said he liked, I would go and listen to them. That is what I want to do with my fans.
What I learned from Lennon was something that did stay with me my whole career, which is to be very straightforward. I actually love talking about taking pictures, and I think that helps everyone.
I don’t really have a lot of hip-hop and all of that, so I have a lot of John Lennon. That’s one that I really like, and The Clash, the Rolling Stones, groups that I think are kind of timeless.
Every time a new rock singer comes out they don’t say, ‘Are you the new John Lennon?’ Every time a new rapper comes out, it’s not, ‘Are you the new Dre?’ I am never sure why this sort of genre, the categorization is so strong. I have not earned the right to be called the young Sinatra, but give me time.
There’s benefits of having established artists on the record, Liam Payne on ‘Polaroid’ for example. If you look at that song you have Lennon Stella, who’s an up-and-coming artist, so there’s a balance on there because I still want people to focus on the song just as much as Liam being an amazing superstar.
One of the most cherished photographs in my life is a picture of me with John Lennon – who I met back in 1971 at an anti-war rally.
My heroes were Dylan, John Lennon and Picasso, because they each moved their particular medium forward, and when they got to the point where they were comfortable, they always moved on.
Lennon and McCartney became great songwriters because they were prepared to listen to and learn from all types of music.
When I brought ‘El Topo’ to New York, no one understood the picture. But John Lennon understood. John and Yoko Ono, they presented ‘El Topo’ in the United States; they introduced it.
John Lennon, who was a good friend of mine, he had one of the best senses of humor of any human being. And Keith Richards, fantastic sense of humor. They were smart, sharp. They had their own thoughts on matters.
