Courtesy of Huffington Post comes this eerie yet fascinating artist rendition of what Beatle John Lennon would look like if he were alive today..
I was awakened at 8:30 this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me of the loss of my brother Corey Haim. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful,beautiful,tormented soul, who will always be my brother,family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived. ~ Corey

“Try again the best you can
“Call to see her when you’re least expected
“Tell her now she’ll understand.”
Julian indicated he is currently working on music to accompany the lyrics, in honor of his dad. Who better to compose music to the late, iconic Beatle’s lyrics than his own son?
