I can't imagine what you guys had to emotionally deal with when Lennon died. I mean, I will have to deal with the death of Paul and Ringo, but hopefully it will be less shocking

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

I agree. I was heartbroken when George passed away, especially because it seemed he had such a rough last couple of years. And he was relatively young. It just wasn't...fair. With John, it happened late at night, and I was 4 then. I have no real memory of the day after, or my parents saying or doing anything out of the ordinary. But it was weird to get introduced to the Beatles, pretty much fall in love with the guy, and then have it hit me: he's not here anymore. I have to be in the right frame of mind before I decide to watch anything about him.

I wasn't a beatles fan when when George died so I wasn't heartbroken at the time of death (I am Now Of Course), so the next to die will be the first which will Emotionally hit me

Sun King : I hope they both die in their sleep at the age of 95. It sounds like a bit of a flippant remark at first but at the core of it, it's my sincerest wish for them.

Not at all for me. It would be the best. They must die, so they should die peacefully at a grand old age

I found this in the bulletin board from my school. I'm sooo going

 

(Just in case you can't figure it out, it says Tribute to Lennon. It's going to be in a shopping center)

Who cares who died when.a-hard-days-night-ringo-5  As long as the four great boys go down in history as the greatest musicians ever. They will be remembered like Beethoven or Bach a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Rap music is just computerized crap. - George Harrison

I was 6 when George died. One of the LSAs (Learning Support Assistants) from another classroom came into ours and told our LSA and teacher that George Harrison was dead. I think they were crying, but I didn't understand the significance of the words. Someone asked who George Harrison was, and they were told he was a great musician, but nobody understood how great.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

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.
