    Very Surreal

    I'll never forget the exact moment I was told. I was getting ready for school in my downstairs bathroom. No one else was up. My cousin, who lived next door, came over as we used to walk together to school. She and everyone else knew how huge a Beatles fan I was. I started liking...

    The Day John Lennon Died

    I remember this day, not as a good day, I was in the Armed Forces at the time, one of the cadets from upstairs came running down saying he had just heard that John Lennon had been shot, and was dead, I was stunned and refused to believe it, but I still had to get ready for...

    Kevin Magee's Bar, St. Louis

    There was a break from the football game during which the announcement was made. Maggie started singing "Oh, Darling" and everyone in the whole bar joined her in singing it...I'll never forget that night as long as I live.

    Watching the Wheels

    I was 11 yrs old.  I remember seeing it on TV.  I was profoundly sad.  Not sure why.  At 11, what kind of real emotion do you have for someone who was not of your generation even.  I was never into Beetles music.  That came later. ...

    Vivid Memory

    When John was killed I was in middle school and had been a Beatles fan since I was 7 years old.  Oddly enough, "Help" was supposed to be aired on TV late-night and I was waiting for it to come on after the football game, so I had the game on.  I wasn't paying...

    It Was The Same Year My Father Died

    December 9, 1980 was an awful day, I remember crying and crying, and not being able to believe that anyone would want John Lennon dead. He was killed the night before, and I did not know it until the next day. I felt like a Mac truck hit me! I remember crying for his...

    December 8, 1980 Was a Very Sad Day. :(

       I remember hearing about John Lennon's death on the radio.  I was a sophomore in high school at the time.  My older brother was obsessed with The Beatles since he was a toddler, so I was accustomed to hearing Beatles' tunes blaring from his bedroom stereo...

    To Be Or Not To Be

    It was grade 12 - we were on our way to see Shakespeare's Hamlet for a school trip (actually Lennon was shot and died the night before) - but my best friend was the biggest John Lennon fan I had ever known - he idolized him, he was his hero. I don't think we had talked much at...
