stars on Lennon
Brandon Flowers of
the killers on... 'God'
There'll always be 15-year-olds who discover the Beatles. But I
really appreciated Lennon for how strong his solo work was. A lot of
people lose it - whatever "it" is - and he didn't. "God" ends with
this beautiful thing where he says, "I was the Dreamweaver but now
I'm reborn/I was the Walrus, but now I'm John." It just melts my
heart every time. It shows that he kind of came full circle. He went
through the drugs and everything, but came back to being John and
being proud of it and telling the whole world.
