John Lennon’s 70 birthday, which happened yesterday, is one of those things that certainly focuses the mind on the passing of time, as well as what might have been.The icons of 60s rock are now starting to pass their 70th birthday-Ringo is already there, and Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson are less than two years away. Rock and roll is no longer young, it’ part of nostalgia. But for those still with us (of which, tragically, Lennon isn`t), they still have something to say, as Brian did with the Gershwin record.
