Who is John Lennon?

Written by The Lennon Bus

 

Lennon may no longer be with us but his music is something that will never die. Like a sparklers glow passed from hand to hand on the 4th of July, Lennon’s music continues to put dazzles in the eyes of ears hearing it for the first time. 50 years ago Lennon himself could of never imagined the means available for music to spread it’s wings in the 21st century. Between tweets and email inboxes, from Facebook posts to iPod playlists, mixed CD’s and iTune’s Genius’, the means to share music with family, friends, and fans has become multifaceted.

The Lennon Bus is one of those facets. We are not just dedicated to spreading the legacy of John Lennon through music and creation to students across the nation, but also to spreading that spark. That moment of light that burns so bright and true. The moment imagination first kisses reality moving from the shadows of your mind to the light of your fingers. The moment music is made.

Lennon’s talents allowed him to make moments into music, music into bands, bands into Beatles, Beatles into culture, culture into movements, and movements back into moments, moments that make change.

The Lennon Bus realizes though that many youngsters that come on board the bus do not know who John is. We relish in the opportunity to share the sparkle, to pass the light, and to dazzle the eye. In an effort to address this issue with the youth we look forward to sharing these forthcoming articles with you in hopes of learning more of who John was and who he could be for you and me.
