At the Counter: Cold Turkey Instant Karma and all that jazz

Verble says to John Steppenwolf, "I always get a little misty eyed, on this day, of all days . . ."

"Yeah," says Steppenwolf, "in memory of John, right?"

"That's right. It's amazing how a semi-accomplished guitarist could have made so many excellent acoustic tunes."

"Really?" says the Barista. "Most people remember him for all his Peace Love and Understanding."

"Ah, that was a myth, a persona he used because it felt good. He was really a right regular wank most of the time - but the beautiful part of him came out in some of his best tunes . . . and I'm not talking 'Strawberry Fields' or 'Come Together', no, I'm talking more like 'Norwegian Wood' 'Across the Universe' 'Julia' . . . "

"Two Virgins?" offers Steppenwolf.

"Musical masturbation," counters Verble. "Told you he was a wank, but still . . . man, Lennon did make some great songs. 'Dear Prudence' - gives me chills to this VERY DAY!"
