Best ever John Lennon Tribute Artist

I remember the original broadcast, 21 years ago, and how shocked I was when he walked through the doors!! Check him out - it's quite incredible. 1.25 is the moment that makes you gulp! EERIE!

He was incredible!!

It was the very first episode of STARS IN THEIR EYES with dear departed Leslie Crowther.

He didn't win either! The equally amazing Shirley Bassey tribute took the gong! And I remember a very good (if somewhat short) Mick Jagger being on the same killer episode!

The resemblance is uncanny. But Gary Gibson's voice isn't as good as John's.

Still, I'll wager seeing "The Cavern Beatles" was totally fun, a big night out.

He's good and certainly has the look. But I wonder if non-Elvis fans look at ETAs and think `he's good'.

If there was was an ETA who looked & sounded as much like our boy as this one does John Lennon, we might very well say "He's good !"

Jamie Kelley came close !

This guy is considered the best.

Mark Staycer is his name.

He's good but not a patch on Mr Gibson!

Perhaps it is because there are about 5 Lennon impersonators, and about 5,000,000 Presley imposters.

Perhaps he should start a band with PMTA Ardy Sarraf. Even though he's right-handed he brilliantly plays Paul's divine bass lines left-handed for the sake of authenticity. I don't know how he does that.

Actually, Sarraf is already in a successful Beatles Tribute Band called The Fab Four.

That Mark Staycer is the Shawn Klush among the Lennon imitators/impersonators (oh sorry, I meant "Tribute Artists").

What is suppose to happen at 1:25 that is suppose to be of interest? :smt017
No one in the audience could guess who he looked like. And if you didn't have "Best John Lennon Tribute Artist" in the subject I wouldn't have guessed either, he looks absolutely nothing like John Lennon , and I still haven't figured out who he sounds like - besides terrible...

Good point.


As for John Lennon and the rest of the Beatles, this guy (Andrew Lubman) takes some beating. He is playing and singing ALL the parts. And he can sing.
