It's almost spooky.

Speaking about his love for Lennon on his blog, he said: "He’s still alive with his music, although he is not physically with us, he left his entire legacy and the most important thing, as John said, this conviction that we must believe in ourselves and we must get up every day to follow our dreams."

On why he started impersonating Lennon, he explained: "Well, I fell in love with them when I was 8 years old, I was watching tv when I saw this ad of a TV show. They were singing 'A Hard Day’s Night'. I was shocked; the riff of the beginning just blew my mind. I felt so attracted to their music.

"It was the first time music had colours, smell as I had imagined. Of John I’ve always liked his sense of humour, his voice and his rebellious spirit, saying what he wanted to say, always standing up for what he believed in."
