Today marks the anniversary that I dread every year. Remember that day the same way people talk about the Kennedy assassination. Would have been great to have him playing music these days. Wonder what he would of had to say. I'm sure it would be great. Raise a glass to John today people.smileys with beer


I will never in a million years understand how someone feels this way about the death of someone they don't even know. You are obviously lacking something in your life and obviously have been for a long time..

Sorry.

It's not that hard to understand. John Lennon certainly gave me a lot more joy than most people I know. And he was someone I could identify with, a quirky only child. And the fact that his 1970s interviews show him to be as full of shit as anyone, helped pull him down from that pedestal all the Beatles had been put on.

I was deeply affected by Robert Kennedy's assassination. There has been nothing like him since. All of them are gray suited grafters. But I don't like candles underneath portraits of Lennon or RFK and worship them. But I can certainly feel deeply about the loss of what they represented.





He was a friend of mine, he was a friend of mine
His killing had no purpose, no reason or rhyme
He was a friend of mine

He was in Dallas town, he was in Dallas town
From a sixth floor window a gunner shot him down
He died in Dallas town

He never knew my name, he never knew my name
Though I never met him, I knew him just the same
Oh he was a friend of mine


Leader of a nation for such a precious time
He was a friend of mine

Feeling that you ought to "muster up some sadness" on a particular date every year seems wrong to me. The event itself is horrible. A year on, yes, you remember that this time last year... But for me, as time goes on, the importance of the anniversary wears off, and you remember the person, not the date. As stonehearted said, if you remember any date, remember their birthday and give thanks that they lived.

It is going to be belated, but I'm going to pay my respect.

The unfortunate incident took place at the south entrance of the Dakota?

Stanlove, the real question is about you and whether or not you have any depth of feeling about anything. Or maybe you were too young to grow up with the Beatles...if so it is not something I could describe other than to say they became a REAL part of our existence...as did the Stones. I'm sad for you really. ( Not that I don't wish I could have skipped the pain his death caused me...and millions of people around the world...certainly I wish he could have been anywhere but at the Dakota that night.)
It's also insulting that you would phrase it the way you did....wondering why WE could feel that deeply about someone we didn't know.

P.S Stanlove....there's something LACKING in you, I'd have to say, for you to even post such a statement.

Thank you stonehearted. I was very young when John died and my mom woke me up to tell me.

I stand by what I said and I grew up with the Beatles. I think its downright sick when people go on and on about people they have never met. Nobody on this board knew the man. If you are attached to someone you never met you have a problem.

I love the Stones and always have. If the same think happened to Jagger in 1980 it would suck because the music is gone. I would feel bad for his family. I sure as hell wouldn't act like a family member of mine died and I wouldn't dread the anniversary of his death. I think people who do that are lacking something in their lives.

I was embarrassed for people standing outside the Dakota crying and singing songs. WTF. And just to let you know. The media covers it when a celeb dies and shows the fans crying and carrying on like they lost a family member, but they don't talk to the majority of people when this happens who laughs at these people and asks what the freak is wrong with them, its sick.

Yeah because I don't go around feeling like someone I never met is basically a family member I am lacking something..Give me a break.

You don't. People have different opinions. Just got to keep your nose to yourself and worry about what is on your plate.

A friend of mine participated in a demonstration against the murder of John Lennon. He was a teenager at that time and stating his statement. John was (and still is) his idol.

I never personally met Lennon, nor any of the Beatles or the Stones....but they were public figures, their music was a huge part of my life & I'd feel badly to hear of any demise, just like when George Harrison died. The way John Lennon died was senseless, I lived in New York at the time & remember DJs on major radio stations the next morning in tears talking about it with fans.
For any fans in the LA area, K-Earth 101 FM has an oldies Beatles show every Sunday til 10 am, think it starts at 9. Last week Lennon was featured. winking smiley
