Imagine if he’d lived, that some lunatic hadn’t wanted a moment of fame.
Imagine if he’d lived and the world had become as one.
It’s true it was all just a dream, but without dreamers, there can be no dreams.
Would he be an old man in his seventies farting about playing his old hits and making a name for himself with outlandish comments upon society?
Or might he might have revolutionised music more so that he already had.
Would we be listening to new and exciting music or a rehash of the past?
But we’ll never know because he died young.
I looked into his face and wondered if he knew what lay ahead for him, did he already see how he had shaped so much of what we know as modern music?
I imagine he is tickled pink to think that after all these years we still enjoy listening to his music, that the song Imagine still brings a tear to the eye.
There’s a lot to be said for going out on a high, he didn’t gain everyone’s approval, but he left a legacy for us to treasure.
