Assorted John news

- Two reviews of the DVD, John Lennon: Rare and Unseen.

- Yoko recently professed her admiration for Oasis, saying, "We need the power of goodness like them. The goodness is shining from their music." Ah yes, the "goodness" that is two legendarily conceited, querulous, and substance-abusing brothers, rock 'n' roll's non-murderous Cain and Abel (though Abel's becoming qualities aren't much in evidence), who haven't recorded a great album in well over a decade. I love them too, but come on, Yoko.

- Residents of the Dakota, John and Yoko's erstwhile haunt on the Upper West Side, "want tourists to get the fuck (oh my) away from their building."

- Sean Lennon rocks out as the lead-man for his new project, The Ghost of a Saber-Toothed Tiger.

- Finally, a list of events for the forthcoming John Lennon Tribute Season.
