John Lennon - Rock Star or Bread Baker?

The power of the oven never ceases to amaze me.

the power of community is wonderful as well.

S.W. from the UK sent me a wonderful-wonderful link that made me think, let me post it for you, then I will come back and reply......

As pointed out by the LA Times, a recent broadcast on NPR aired tape recordings from an interview between David Sheff and John Lennon that took place over a three-week period in 1980, here in New York City. The tapes have allegedly never been broadcast before, though the transcripts were published.) The interview came out in Playboy, in an issue that hit newsstands on October 6th of that year.

What was Lennon's life like just before he was murdered? He was apparently playing the role of stay-at-home dad and got way into baking bread! He says, “I took a Polaroid photo of my first loaf. I was overjoyed, you know. I was that excited by it. I couldn’t believe it, it was like an album coming out of the oven on the instant. And every day I was cooking lunch for the staff-drivers, office boys, anybody who was working. Come on up! I love it!” He also described his bread to BBC at the time, saying, "It looked great, you know, and it tasted good—that was pretty damned good."

The End

Can you dig that?

Here is a guy who was as popular as Christ...his words not mine LOL, and even though he lived amongst a world that worshipped him, the Walrus prefered the company of the oven.

This simply does not surprise me in the least.

Klecko likes attention -

Klecko likes girls and parties -

Klecko likes selling out Madison Square Garden

But at the end of the day, when a person grows up and matures, when a person lets wisdom take root.

They will realize that there is simply nothing as miraculous and tangible than feeding bread to people.


  1. That blog makes me feel good all over - thank you!

    1. Sellman, I am glad to hear it! I was always more of a "Paul" guy, that a "John", but who knows???? Maybe my opinion has changed.
