We all know the story of what happened when John Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman. The tragic loss of one of music’s most beloved artists. Yoko is asking for people to share their memories or thoughts about John at Imagine Peace. You can do so below or here.
I wasn’t alive really to have any actual memories of John Lennon, but for me listening to The Beatles and later his solo stuff, I think in many ways allowed my dad and I to bond over something besides baseball. I think it gave us something else to share and for that I could never thank John Lennon enough.
And as always, you can watch John hanging with Bob Dylan drunk in the back of a cab. Surreal and boring video of music’s two finest song smiths.
