Let me ask you guys this: Would the general public feel sadder for Lennon still if George had been shot and John had died of Cancer?

Umm…no offence, but I think this is not the kind of subject we should be discussing here. It's just morbid.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

For those of you who get the BBC America and VH1 Classic channels, they are airing John-related programming tomorrow. Here are the sites if you want to check out the lineups.

You may have seen these shows already, but for those who haven't you may want to check them out.

Hooray! I'm getting out of work early so I can watch this (if my cable comes back to me, that is)! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 

(not at all Beatles related, but I've been getting a lot of 18s -- which is 9+9 -- but I always end up thinking more of Alice Cooper than anything else.)

My Classic Rock station is holding a memorial tomorrow for John with a performance of Give Peace A Chance by all the attending. Some Idiots complained that He is Overrated and it is a stupid Idea

I like the idea of doing something good today. I'm donating blood. I didn't have any choice on the day, but I think it's kismet.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

I like how you think, Skye! I think doing anything positive today is a good way to combat all the negativity that created this day in the first place.

Today really is the worst day ever. Reading about him or listening to his songs only makes me wanna start crying. I was listening to Pandora radio last night and at exactly 12 midnight and Watching the Wheels started playing. I started tearing. Awfully sad. I wish I could go to Central Park today but my finals got in the way of my memorial.

 

Love you John. May you rest in peace and continue to play songs up in heaven with George.

My feelings and thoughts are with Julian and Sean. Yoko and Cyn. Paul and Ringo. John's siblings, especially Julia and Jackie. I know what's losing someone because of violence. So today, I just stop and say a prayer for them.

 

John, you have NO IDEA how much we need you. In this insane world where I live, the only thing that keeps me sane is to truly believe that All You Need Is Love. So, I sing this song, even if sometimes it doesn't ring true.

So thanks for your music, and for Julian. apple01

I have to agree

Today in school when i realized that it was december 8, i was sad and me having to write it down about 8 times didn`t help a lot either, each time i remember what happened that day it`s sad, if he had only went another way and to think probably a Beatles Reunion could have happened.

Probably John and George are Free As A Bird right now.

John, Paul, George and Ringo= The Beatles And i buried Tulio!

I was out of college, at my first post-college job in Miami.  I didn't get the news until the morning after.  Like I did every morning, I switched on the radio while I got ready for work.  They were playing a Beatles song.  Then another.  "Cool", I thought.  Then another.  Then the deejay said that John Lennon had been murdered and they were only going to be playing his music.

I was stunned.  I sat on the edge of the bed and just stared at nothing for awhile.  Then I finished getting ready and cried all the way to work.  I had lost a friend I'd never met.  A friend I first met in 1964 at the age of six.
