|Fan pays tribute in music to Julian Lennon|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Thursday, 12/18/08 8:06 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
On his new CD called That Lucky, Jimi Arthur has included a song in which he puts his own spin on a personal tribute to Julian Lennon and John.
Originally from Seattle, Jim now lives in Willow, Alaska. He says he fell in love with the Beatles as most did when they landed in the U.S. Of course, he begged his mom for his own guitar and began all those years ago. He's been into music for over 40 years and That Lucky is his first CD.
Jimi's partner in the music is even named Linda McCartney. She did the art work on the front cover and all the photos inside. Linda is also a rising artist and loves taking photos, like the more famous Linda.
A few of the other songs on the CD are Beatles-related as well. Jimi says he's also influenced by Jim Morrison of the Doors. Jimi said, "Half the battle I am having is that I am an unknown trying to breakthrough and isn't that how all the music began... with just one note."
You can find his CD and listen to samples of the tracks at CD Baby.
