Remembering John Lennon and others lost on this date

A song which to me is the epitome of Lennon:


Some of you may find this irreverent but another one of my personal heroes 'Dimebag' Darrel Abbot (of Pantera fame) was shot on stage whilst playing guitar on this day 6 years ago too.

Re: Remembering John Lennon and others lost on this date

A bit odd this; an event that has been made a lot of by the media, but, if the reaction to this topic is anything to go by, it hasn't exactly set the world alight with interest by anybody else.
Was always a closet Beatles fan (covering a few of their titles in my youth) But never quite understood Lennon in his later years.
There was always much talk of plagiarism surrounding Lennon and McCartney. And like many others I knew somebody who was a friend of a friend of a long distant relative of a put-out writer who claimed he wrote some of their hits. 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I bought Sgt Pepper's, Yellow Submarine and Abbey Road mainly because they fitted in with my then life style Wink Embarrassed

A sad loss to songwriting.  He wrote some of the best songs of a generation.  He will always be remembered.

@adiewoo. Managed by Brian Epstein. The Simon Cowell of his day. Without him there may not have been Beatlemania!!

35 years ago tomorrow on 8th December John Lennon was shot and killed outside the Dakota Building in New York.
Lennon's last interview was given to Andy Peebles and will be broadcast exclusively on ShowBiz TV on 8th December at 6.30pm.
An interesting article about the interview:
