Yes, the interviewer Selina Scott said that John “was no angel”. George responded: “He wasn’t, but he was as well.”

This is a tough watch, just over an hour of ABC News material from the week after John’s murder. The first 14 minutes show the crowds outside The Dakota in the days after, without any commentary, along with footage of the comings and goings through the service entrance, which include Julian arriving and leaving. The remaining roughly 47 minutes are ABC News’ coverage of the 10 minute silent vigil in Central Park on 14 December:

Hope you’ve found you some peace out there, John. You are not forgotten here. People everywhere still sing your songs.


Yeah, I miss John and I try not to think about him dying. I played Free As A Bird on piano in my school’s band hall this morning to all the 6th and 7th graders. My eyes water a bit when I play some of his songs. I’m actually getting a chance to go to The Dakota and Strawberry Fields soon. It’s kind of saddening but my friends and I get to honor John and his beautiful music.

Thanks for that Ron. It was indeed a hard watch, but I had to see it. After all this time my emotions are still the same. Grief is the price we pay for love.

This is a film of author Ken Kesey reading his short story “Now We Know How Many Holes It Takes To Fill The Albert Hall”. It’s about both the killing of John Lennon and the demise of the sixties counter culture.
