It comes down to what you want at Strawberry Fields – I see it as a silent, sombre place to reflect, others see it as a gathering place for people to play. I'm just glad my point of view is shared by the people who make the decisions. ITSWD – love the photo.

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

I think that a great way to remember John is to play his music, and sing his songs.

So i think it would be weird if there was a law against music there…

This really makes no sense…. John was a freaking MUSICIAN and now MUSICIANS can't play there! I've always wanted to go there since my favourite Beatle is Johnny, and I imagined people paying their respects differently. Some may want to perform his songs as a tribute to him while others may want to silently pay their respects. Whoever suggested that bright idea may need some mental help…

Last weekend I happened to be in NY.  Stopped at the Dakota and then across the street to Central Park and Strawberry Fields.

I understand people wanting to play music, but am happy it was peaceful and serene there.

(on a side note, it was nice to see grass and trees)

My friend is going to New York in a few months with a friend of hers and I´m going to ask her to pop by there and take some pictures for me – wish I was going! :(

Perhaps a second memorial, as someone suggested, would be in order.

It could be a glass structure, modern, with lots of open air atriums.  Call the place Glass Onion.  Let musicians do whatever they want there. 

However, mimes should be arrested on the spot.a-hard-days-night-john-6
