|Celebrate John's 70th birthday with MPFree download|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Sunday, 10/10/10 3:00 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
To commemorate John Lennon's seventieth birthday, Detroit-based indie band Skeleton Crew will make an MPFree (Free MP3) music download of their version of John's I Am The Walrus available to the world. The high quality, 320 kbps MP3 download can be downloaded for free the entire month of October from here and from here.
There's just one (positive) catch. Skeleton Crew is asking all those who download the free song to consider becoming a "tributary of peace." John and Yoko were at the forefront of the modern peace movement. Their vision embraced new technologies to encourage peace and love throughout the world. Noting that the Internet is like a mammoth "river of peaceful possibilities," Skeleton Crew lead singer, William Pilipchuk would like to encourage the masses to follow in Yoko's footsteps as she continues to harness the powerful connectivity of the Internet to help humanity embrace and share peace and love.
Skeleton Crew drummer Greg Tyler said, "In this era of instant-everything where it seems people are talking more and listening less, one thing has remained constant: we're still listening to music. The celebration of John Lennon's 70th birthday is the perfect time to once again embrace his medium of choice - music - to encourage the world to start listening to each other, keep the peace and stop the proliferation of fear and hate.
After downloading the Free MP3 of I Am The Walrus, Skeleton Crew encourages everyone to visit Yoko Ono's website, Imagine Peace to see how she is utilizing the Internet to spread positive messages.
