No. 119 – Strawberry Fields Forever

Prog 540’s Zenith cover by Steve Dillon (1962–2016), featuring Peter St. John (aka Mandala), written by Grant Morrison MBE* vs. John Winston Ono Lennon MBE (1940–1980), pictured here in the psychedelic piece Strawberry Fields (artist unknown)

Strawberry Fields Forever is a song by the English rock band The Beatles, written by Lennon and Paul McCartney CH**, MBE; it was inspired by Lennon’s memories of playing in the garden of Strawberry Field, a Salvation Army children’s home near where he grew up in Liverpool.

Then again, it could just as easily be George Harrison MBE (1943–2001) (artist unknown)
