In Memory of John Lennon’s 76th Birthday!

October 09, 1940 one of the great voices of the world was born. John Lennon always spoke his mind and was a true voice that we needed so many years ago. His words are still valid today.

My entire life changed when I was twelve years old and the Beatles came to America in 1964 which opened up the whole world for me.  Their music turned me on so much that it was just like I had gone into another dimension. I understood the music and found it waking me up as though my previous twelve years I had been asleep.

The first time I saw their photograph John Lennon struck me as someone unique. My girlfriends all were in love with Paul McCartney. I was not in love with John, but when I heard him in interviews I loved his wit and I bought his first book, “In His Own Write” and found his humor to be the same as mine. The music of the Beatles was magic at that time, and it certainly lit a fire under me that has not extinguished to this day.

For those of you who were not alive when the Beatles blasted across America you will not easily understand the significance of their impact upon not only America, but the entire world.  They changed our culture. The Beatles arrived in America just under three months after the assassination of President John Kennedy. This assassination had brought America into a massive depression and the fresh lively spirit of the Beatles was exactly what the country needed to boost itself.

I was fortunate to see the Beatles perform live three times and luckily I was close to the stage the last time I saw them, and it was indescribable. It was a lasting memory. I followed the Beatles faithfully until their breakup and from there I continue to follow each one’s music. But as always John seemed to be expressing the feelings that I had.

John was always the most outspoken, and, at one point in 1966, he was condemned in the United States because of stating that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.  He was not saying that they were greater than Jesus but just that their popularity extended farther. It was the truth at that time.  From then on he received death threats and was told that he would be assassinated during their 1966 United States tour.  This is one of the main reasons the Beatles stopped performing live.

Fame was a great pressure on John, and he looked for other avenues to explore having conquered the world.  He discovered LSD and used it to open up his creativity.  From there he discovered meditation and went to India to practice and learn from a master.  He met Yoko Ono, and they fell in love even though they were both married at the time.  He felt Yoko was his soul mate, and they were together until the end of his life.

They started a movement for peace and love.  He gained new world recognition for his peace movement and his views against all wars.  He expressed his views through his music and many people paid attention.  His goal was to have people get along and follow the path of love and peace.  For a time John went into seclusion, but in 1980 he was making a comeback with a new album, the first in five years, and ready to get back into his many causes.

I want to remember all that he did in his short 40 years.  He definitely kept me aware of what was going on in the world through his music and his peaceful demonstrations.  He gave a voice to the consciousness that so many were feeling and unable to find the words or ways to express it.  John did.

Each year new people discover John Lennon for the first time.  In Havana, Cuba, they have a wonderful bronze statue of John Lennon sitting casually on a park bench as though he is observing those who pass by.  Recently a teenager asked me if I knew who John Lennon was. I just had to smile at that question.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 36 years since John was assassinated, but his legacy will live forever and that speaks greatly for the man. Because John was only 40 years old when he died he will always be remembered young and I wonder what he would have been like at 76 years of age. He still would have been turning out fabulous music and art, just as Paul McCartney, Ringo, and George Harrison have done throughout the years.

I continue to listen to the Beatles and John Lennon’s music and always enjoy it. I am thankful that I lived in the most exciting time there was the 1960’s and I was able to experience Beatlemania full on.

So Happy Birthday John and thank you for everything you gave us. You will always live in our hearts.

With love,
Cherokee Billie

Happy 74th birthday Paul McCartney!

Paul guitar

On June 18, 2016 Paul McCartney turns 74 years old.

It just seems like “Yesterday” that I was twelve years old and watching the Beatles perform live on the Ed Sullivan show. 52 years later I am still a Beatlemanic and proud of it!

Paul McCartney is listed as the most prolific songwriter in history. His first collaborations with John Lennon were remarkable. The two of them had a wonderful chemistry together and proved it over and over. The impact the Beatles made on the world cannot be fully understood by those who were not there at the time. I always feel that my life was in black and white and did not become filled with colors until the Beatles. That’s the most simplistic way I can express what they did for me.

When the Beatles disbanded Paul McCartney took a much needed break from the world and retreated to his sheep farm in Scotland for a few years to recover from everything he had been through over the last ten years.

When he reemerged he came back with forming his own group “Wings” along with his wife Linda Eastman. This band had countless hits and Paul proved that he was more than just a pretty face.

One of the things that I admire the most about the man is the way that he lives his personal life. He was a very loving husband for almost 30 years until the passing of Linda. He kept his family close to him at all times and none of his children have ended up disastrously. They all have their own careers and are quite successful away from Paul.

I am happy that he has found a wonderful woman, Nancy Shevell, to share his life with.

He is always a gentleman and never has a bad word to say about anyone. He always shows love and appreciation to his fans because he knows they’re the reason for his success. His talents go way beyond rock and roll music as he has written operas and directed several short films.

No wonder the Queen made him Sir Paul McCartney.

I watched a live performance he did recently and this man can still Rock and Roll better than anybody out there. Please continue the wonderful work that you do Paul, because we certainly appreciate it.

Wishing you the very best on your birthday and always. You will always be Paulie to me.

With love,
Cherokee Billie

Happy Birthday Johnny Depp!

June 09, 2012 Johnny Depp turns 49 years old. He has been a part of our culture for so long and he inspires and motivates many people. I send out best wishes and blessings to him and his family on his birthday. I hope that he has a wonderful day and lives a long time so that he continues to delight and entertain us.

Johnny is a fine actor who always surprises me with his performances. I hope someday he makes a CD of music. He is a fine musician who accidentally fell in to acting. Some people do not realize that he came to Los Angeles to be a rock star. He was destined for fame one way or another and it came to him through acting.

Worldwide this man is loved and there has to be something beautiful inside of his soul to attract so much love. He definitely has the key to touch the hearts of so many.

It was a real treat to see him on the MTV awards playing lead guitar the other evening. He definitely deserved the lifetime achievement award. How many other actors his age have made so many movies and touched so many lives?

The first movie that really caught my attention was “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.” I knew after seeing that movie that there was a lot more to Johnny Depp then just being a pretty boy. Over the years he has proven what a fine actor he is. The diversity of roles that he chooses is astounding. I’m sure each one of you has a favorite movie or character that he has played. Please share your thoughts about Johnny Depp in honor of his birthday.

Many blessings to you Johnny,
Cherokee Billie

P.S. Don’t tell anyone, but I have a crush on Johnny!

‘I GOT YOUR MAMA’

I thought this was so funny I just had to share it with you.

Little Carol came into the kitchen where her mother was making
dinner.
Her birthday was coming up and she thought this was a good time
to tell her mother what she wanted. ‘Mom, I want a bike for my
birthday.’
Now, Little Carol was a bit of a troublemaker. She had gotten
into trouble at school and at home.. Carol’s mother asked her if she
thought she deserved to get a bike for her birthday. Little Carol, of
course, thought she did.
Carol’s mother, being a Christian woman, wanted her to reflect
on her behavior over the last year, and write a letter to God and tell
him why she deserved a bike for her birthday. Little Carol stomped up
the steps to her room and sat down to write God a letter.

________________________________
LETTER 1:
Dear God:
I have been a very good girl this year and I would like a bike
for my birthday. I want a red one. Your friend, Carol

Carol knew this wasn’t true. She had not been a very good girl
this year, so she tore up the letter and started over.

________________________________
LETTER 2:
Dear God:

This is your friend Carol. I have been a pretty good girl this
year, and I would like a red bike for my birthday..

Thank you, Carol

Carol knew this wasn’t true either. She tore up the letter and
started again.

________________________________
LETTER 3:
Dear God:
I know I haven’t been a good girl this year. I am very sorry.
I will be a good girl if you just send me a red bike for my birthday.

Thank you, Carol

Carol knew, even if it was true, this letter was not going to
get her a bike. By now, she was very upset. She went downstairs and
told her mother she wanted to go to church. Carol’s mother thought her
plan had worked because Carol looked very sad.

‘Just be home in time for dinner,’ her mother said. Carol walked
down the street to the church and up to the altar. She looked around to
see if anyone was there. She picked up a statue of the Virgin Mary,
slipped it under her jacket and ran out of the church, down the street,
into her house, and up to her room. She shut the door and sat down and
wrote her letter to God.

________________________________
LETTER 4:

I GOT YOUR MAMA.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN, SEND THE BIKE.

Signed, YOU KNOW WHO

In Memory of John Lennon’s 70th Birthday


John Lennon has inspired me since I was twelve years old and I saw him in person in 1964. It’s hard to believe that so many years have passed and he would be 70 years old. I know that he would still be the great artist always evolving and creating. I have written a dedication to John that I hope you take that time to read. He was one of the greatest inspirations in my life.

Read The Entire Dedication Here

I have enclosed my favorite song of John Lennon’s. I certainly hope you enjoy it. Happy birthday John! Your spirit lives on.
