Did any if you know that for a period John Lennon smoked heroin? I found out in a biography of him I read. It gives songs like 'Cold Turkey' a striking poignancy. Does this surprise you and how does it change your opinion of John? Some say it was heroin arriving on the scene that soured the hippy movement. Many of you may think John was an asshole but he is my favourite Beatle. It is popular opinion that Yoko split the Beatles but I think that was inevitable anyway. I much prefer his solo stuff after meeting Yoko. I was lucky to see her play at the Royal Festival Hall with her son by John, Sean. She gave everyone an 'Ono Chord' which I still have. It's a little torch that we all shone during the performance. But heroin. What's your opinion?
