“Lennon’s was one of the first voices I emulated when I began to sing. When we held tryouts in my pal’s dad’s living room for the singer in our band, I sang a Beatles song that Lennon sang. There is something about the timbre of his voice, something that it conveys, that still gets to me. The quality and the poetry of his lyrics. The wry sense of humor. And the boyishness, in the beginning. There are a great many things that touch me about him."- Don Henley
