Friday potpourri

Paste's "The Coolest Beatles Songs You Might Have Missed, Vol. 2."

Maureen Cleave's famous London Evening Standard article on a day in the life of John Lennon. Money quote:

"He is much the same as he was before. He still peers down his nose, arrogant as an eagle, although contact lenses have righted the short sight that originally caused the expression. He looks more like Henry VIII than ever now that his face has filled out-he is just as imperious, just as unpredictable, indolent, disorganized, childish, vague, charming and quick-witted. He is still easy-going, still tough as hell."

Rolling Stone's "The Legacy of John Lennon" article from December 1990
