  1. Years ago I read an interview with Jello Biafra, and he talked about the interview Lennon did with Playboy, which I believe was not too long before Lennon was shot. He said it was a good interview, saying something along the lines of “Put it this way- had he been alive, I think the Reagan era would have gone a lot differently.” Which is high praise.
