Didn't John sign MDC's Double Fantasy before he got shot? I wouldn't want something that that horrible MDC had blue-meanie

*17* Paul agrees. 

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

This sort of links to what oneafter909 was saying, but apologies for derailing the thread slightly! a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

 

Anyway, I don't know if any of you have seen this before, but this is a letter from Mark David Chapman to a music dealer asking, among other things, if he could have his signed copy of Double Fantasy back. He wanted to sell it and give the proceeds to a children's charity. He says "I felt it was the least I could do."

The insanity of this man will never cease to amaze me. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Yeah he's definitely still in prison, and he's been denied parole something like six times. I think it's unlikely he'll ever be released; can you imagine the public backlash?

Also on that Letters of Note website there's a letter written by Yoko Ono to the parole board explaining why he shouldn't be released.

http://www.lettersofnote.com/2.....ecial.html

She was doing so well until she confused "it's" and "its", at which point I shifted my sympathies to Chapman.

Grammatical errors aside, I think this is the one thing that I can respect Yoko for. She's now been upgraded from "totally useless."

Haha, yeah.

stay-on-topic would I pay that much for a signed copy of Double Fantasy? I don't think I would. Not even if I was filthy rich, well, maybe.
