This home demo of ‘Simple Peace’ recorded in 1990 is the grown up version of its former self I had originally written in 1988. My longtime friend & collaborator, Jon Claussen, reworked the music one day to give it a ‘Plastic Ono Band’ feel. Forgive the poor cassette tape quality… it’s pushing 30.
Obviously it’s a song about peace. The inspiration for this was simply having lived through the 'Second Cold War' (1979–85). As a kid who was supposed to not have a care in the world, the threat of nuclear war was always something that weighed heavily upon me.
