John Lennon: Fighting The Good Fight With All Of His Might

Derek Taylor, Disc and Music Echo, 30 November 1968

THIS IS addressed to those who love Lennon, who call him John and who give thanks for his being alive, hard by, at hand, dear and near and fearless, gifted by God, with the power to speak our minds, wear our warts, engage our enemy, absorb our pain, rattle his own windows, to shake down his own walls for the times, for the times they long since changed.
