BP Fallon writes:
Forty years ago I was blessed to find myself appearing on Top Of The Pops with John Lennon. Twice. Surreal and unreal and real. I never for one moment back then thought that ten years later John Lennon would be murdered. Why would or how could anyone imagine such sickening madness? And now thirty years since his death it still hurts, it still outrages.
Will the circle be unbroken? Yes. Instant calmer. Forty years after filming the TOTP stuff with John and Yoko, I find myself appearing in Sean Lennon’s new video with Charlotte Kemp Muhl for their band The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger.
What does this mean? I don’t know, not exactly. I think part of it signifies that I’m still here. I wish John was too.
