5 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.
