Mike Nessing adds some thoughts on Nasty Bastard Lennon!!

At the risk of having Yoko take me off her Twitter feed, here are some more “Rock and Roll bastard” moments involving John Lennon.

Keep in mind these are “alleged”.

1) Kicked original basssist Stu Sutcliffe in the head, leading to his brain hemmorrage and eventual death.

2) His often public humiliation of Brian Epstein, with whom he either did or didn’t  have sexual relations with.

One report has Brian inquiring what the title of his book be should he write his memoirs, to which Lennon replied, “How about “JewFag”?

3) His estrangement to his first son Julian, and his wife.

4) Leaving his first wife on the train platform as The Beatles entourage were enroute to catch a plane to India.

5) Lennon was known to imitate the retarded and there are a few archival clips of him on stage hunched over, clapping with the backs of his hands, stamping one foot and sticking his tongue out.

6) Referring to Harrison getting his first ever “A” side of a 45 for “Something” as him “giving George a crumb”

7) The infamous “lost weekend” episode where he came out of a restaurant bathroom with a tampon stuck to his forehead, embarrasing their waitress.

8) Slamming the proverbial door in the face of his dad, who sought him out after he became famous. In fairness, his dad did walk out on him when he was a child.

9) Having Yoko end his affair with May Pang for him by Yoko simply “firing” her.

10) Bastardizing all of Paul’s ideas to keep the band going in the ending days, all the while offering no options of his own.

One source quoted Lennon as saying, “I was basically stoned all the time and did’nt give a shit”.

I’ve always been of the belief, that if you make it in music, sports, or what have you, you’re probably a bastard or a diva. First off, you begin to surround yourself with people who actually perpetuate that because frankly, you are now their meal ticket. So it goes without saying that they are going to constantly tell you that the sun shines out your ass. There are of course, exceptions. I have always been of the belief though, that I really would never want to meet my idols, for fear of what I would discover.

My eldest sibling DID in fact meet Lennon at The Record Plant in manhattan during the ’70’s. He offered him a cigarette, to which Lennon only replied “Nah”. I think he got off easy.
