Biography

Few artists have impacted rock music and society more than John Lennon. Seattle’s legendary Crocodile Café and Roseta Productions LLC hosted the John Lennon Jam benefit show on December 8th 2005, the 25th anniversary of his death. The show featured special guest artists (including Alan White, legendary drummer for Yes & John Lennon) and is hosted by a specially assembled “Jam” band of Seattle musicians (including Rick Lovrovich of The Beatniks) and to perform John Lennon’s Beatles and solo music.

Proceeds benefited Northwest Harvest and the future Seattle stage production about the last day of John Lennon's life called (Just Like) Starting Over. This new play is largely based upon an unpublished interview with John and Yoko granted hours before he was tragically killed. Seattle Public Theater plans to stage the production at the Bathhouse on Greenlake, September 7-17, 2006. Email steve@rosetaproductions.com for more information about (Just Like) Starting Over.
