Celebrate John Lennon's 70th Birthday With "MPFree” Music Download
To commemorate John Lennon’s seventieth birthday on October 9, 2010, 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.

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,”
Noted mind, body and spiritual guru, Dr. Deepak Chopra, expands on this sentiment in explaining the theory of Quantum Physics as an energy that flows freely between all things and the universe making us all interconnected. “In John’s opening lyrics to ‘I am The Walrus’ he sings: ‘I am he, as you are he, as you are me and we are all together,” in other words, as Pilipchuk points out, “John clearly defines Quantum Physics in one line of his song: amazing!”
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,” said Skeleton Crew® drummer, Greg Tyler.
After downloading the Free MP3 of I Am The Walrus, Skeleton Crew® encourages everyone to visit Yoko Ono's website, Imagine Peace, at http://www.imaginepeace.com to see how she is utilizing the Internet to spread positive messages. Visitors to the site may find some inspiration on how they, too, can help change the world.

As performers, Skeleton Crew has opened shows for such diverse acts as: Todd Rundgren, Tesla, Kenny Loggins, Foreigner, The Rembrandts, the Smithereens, Robert Palmer and Eddie Money. Venues have ranged from 2000-seaters, to the outdoor DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan, Tiger Stadium in Detroit and The Palace of Auburn Hills arena.
Skeleton Crew® also merits a musical footnote in the career of superstar Beyonce Knowles as “that scary band” that defeated the then 12-year and her group Girl's Tyme on Ed McMahon’s Star Search.
