Assorted John news

- Read the official preview of "John Lennon in New York," a new episode of American Masters that will air in November on PBS.

- I'm was not aware of this: After John's death, Paul and Yoko asked that fans never utter the name Mark David Chapman so as to deny him "the fame and notoriety he was seeking." You can see that I'm among the impious. Chapman is tucked away in prison and very well could be for the rest of his life. In my view, that's a just amount of obscurity in and of itself.

- Depending on the public's wishes, John could be the face on the next "Great Britons" coin issued by the Royal Mint.

- Liam Gallagher has fantasized that, out of all of Oasis' songs, John would've covered "I'm Outta Time."

- Finally, Sean Lennon and his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp-Muhl recently put out a single called "Jardin du Luxembourg" as part of their new project, Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger.
