Family Dynamics for John Lennon

It’s a cold, winter day in NYC and I hear John Lennon’s music in myhead – there’s no way to shut it off or turn it down, and that’s a good thing…

Mother is God-like to an infant, and father is less important.  Clearly, there is a dynamic that moves as father becomes more powerful in the perception of a child.   This dynamic also greatly effects the child, and the child’s future relationships.  When John Lennon was  lad, as the story goes, he had to choose between his mother and father.  Who knows what really happened, but the family dynamics are reflected in songs like “Mother,” and “Isolation.”  But if you look at the dynamics of John and his wife, Yoko, and you look at John as a father to BOTH of his sons, you may begin to see the mirror image of what likely happened to John.  

A friend just told me a story about a drunken John Lennon pissing on a fan at the Rainbow.  I guess you do have to have been pissed on as a kid to do something like that?  The fan was a good sport, but if it were me I probably wouldn’t have been as understanding.  How about you?
