Gary Lucas (Grammy-nominated guitarist and songwriter)
“John Lennon, more than anyone else save Bob Dylan, represents to me the true spirit of the 60s in all its splendid idealistic glory. When he died I actually wept, and I do not cry easily... and vowed to keep that same spirit alive in my heart.
"His songwriting and guitar playing are beyond question: he wrote indelible masterpieces and knew how to make his guitar TALK, howl, and growl. I never thought of him as a rhythm player only, evidence his masterful solo utterances on ‘The End’ and ‘Revolution’. He dared to dream for us all.”
