Last quote by John Lennon

It has nothing to do with me. Manson was just an extreme version of the people who came up with the 'Paul is dead' thing or who figured out that the initials to 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' were LSD and concluded I was writing about acid. All that Manson stuff was built around George's song about pigs and Paul's song about an English fairground. It has nothing to do with anything, and least of all to do with me.feedback
