There was a slideshow about that back in February on NME.com:

I love the Abbey Road one...some other classic albums in there, too! It's neat seeing the old cars and stuff in the backgrounds as well.

Apologies in advance for the distressing topic. From Newsday via BeatlesNews:

Ever since John Lennon was tragically gunned down in 1980, it has been widely and persistently reported that the former Beatle spoke a few minutes after he was shot. Jim O'Donnell, a noted Beatles' author, refutes the story with new research, showing that Lennon did not linger in agony for minutes and speak, but rather died swiftly in seconds.

More at the link.

Dr. Stephen Lynn, who struggled to resuscitate John on the night, gave the statement, "John Lennon was brought to the emergency room this evening shortly before 11 PM. He was dead on arrival."

In truth, John breathed his last breath in the back of the police car. Just because someone is DOA when they arrive at a hospital does not mean that resuscitation attempts will not be made when you are, as in this instance, within minutes of death. There is a window available where somebody can be brought back.

* Ringo's publishing a children's book based on Octupus's Garden.

 

An image from Ringo's book was posted at his official Facebook with this info:

Here’s an exclusive look at the artwork from the forthcoming picture book of Octopus’s Garden – publishing this October, the song will be brought to life by illustrator Ben Cort and published with a CD of Ringo reading the story and an original, previously un-heard recording of the song by Ringo.

Article about a book on George's HandMade films, Very Naughty Boys.

Robert Sellers's new book Very Naughty Boys, named after the famous lines in Life Of Brian, "He's not the Messiah he's a very naughty boy", tells the amazing true story of George Harrison's film company. HandMade Films made some of the most iconic British movies of the Eighties but what started as a goodhumoured venture ended in tears, recrimination and expensive lawsuits. It is a tale of excess, outrageous behaviour, duplicity and betrayal and the egos and eccentricities of some of the biggest celebrities of the age.

Regarding the above topic of exactly when John Lennon died, it's obviously somewhat academic: he was barely conscious in the back of the police car and beyond resuscitation at the Roosevelt ER. I doubt he suffered much. He quickly felt weak, then faint, then passed out - that's what would happen with any blood loss from any cause.

[As some of you already know, the night he was shot, I was working in the St Lukes ER, St Lukes being the other half of the St Lukes-Roosevelt hospital. I have always wondered how I might have reacted and behaved had the cop car made a left turn up Central Park West towards St Lukes  instead of a right turn - seeing my idol for the first time, but as a corpse. Would I have kept a memento? The IV tubing? Some hair? Would I have known what the 'right' thing was and done it? Maybe there's a book in this [since this is a book thread] where I play out all the different scenarios ranging from "Good Ron" to "Bad Ron"]

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 There is only one question, as no-one here thinks you would be "Bad Ron", is there anything you think could have been done that wasn't? I know you would have been as respectful as Dr. Lynn that night about destroying "souvenirs". As the other doctor who might have found yourself with his heart in your hand, do you think the outcome would have been different?

I know your answer, I know there was nothing that could be done, but you would have tried everything and unwillingly accepted defeat, be they John Lennon or Joe Public.

Don't ever question what you would have done had the police swung left instead of right. You would have tried everything that was tried, and still have had a chest so destroyed by "hollow points" that there was nothing that could be done.

You know it. I know it. His chest was so comprehensively destroyed that there was nothing that even the best doctor on the planet could have changed the outcome.

Do you know Dr. Lynn? Do you think he would allow Joe to ask for his thoughts about that dreadful day for our site? Just a thought.

best wishes

Mark
