I could no more forget John Lennon than I could forget the Beatlesbible! Both are always there in the back of my mind...

I've been remembering John all day (drawing), and now I'm off to bed. If all goes well, at 10:50 p.m. EST, I'll be dreaming of John instead of thinking of John. heart

As it happened, I was awake at 10:50, having just finished listening to A Hard Day's Night over headphones. In fact, as the last strains of I'll Be Back died away, it was 10:50 exactly. a-hard-days-night-john-1

This year I remembered John by ordering a DVD set of his Dick Cavett interviews with Yoko. It came on 12/7 but I didn't watch it yet. Earlier this week I saw his last live TV interview (from 1975).

In a parallel universe John is like the scientist in Back to the Future and someone goes back in time to tell him to wear a bulletproof vest at 10:50 p.m. on December 8th. heart

That's a nice idea, but have you ever tried to drive in NYC? There's no way in Hell the DeLorean could appear anywhere near the corner of 72nd Street and Central Park West going 88 MPH.

Don't worry, Future John is wearing a seat belt and has state of the art air bags

Have you bought a new box of Kleenex? I think I would go through a whole box if I were to listen through all of those songs tomorrow.

I haven't listened to or played Here Today in forever. I'll be doing both tomorrow, and probably baptising my Martin with a few well-spent tears.

Every time I think of his death, I just feel anger more than sadness. That guy didn't deserve to die (of course no one deserves to die but here was a guy at the peak of his life, having just released a new album, taking care of his son, thinking of moving back to England and some lunatic bastard murders him in cold blood).

 

It's not like George or any other Beatle-persons' death that died from natural causes but the fact that he was just going home to pop in and say goodnight to his son, was just such a cruel way for a guy like him to go. 

 

So in saying that I think we'll all agree when I say:

Fuck you MDC, fuck you!
