30 years ago today ....
« on: Dec 08, 2010, 15:06 »
.... since John Lennon was shot outside his home in the Dakota Building, New York City. Probably the most influential musician of his time. I still have the newspaper here in my hand now, The Daily Mirror front page simply reads:


JOHN LENNON
shot dead
in New York
Dec 8, 1980

DEATH
OF A
HERO

Wouldn't call him a hero, a good composer with an average voice who was in the right place at the right time.

"Probably the most influential musician of his time" Maybe fans of Bob Dylan might disagree.

Although Lennon does win on the voice contest. :D
