December 8th, 1980. John Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.

I know a lot of you young fellas don't remember it but I do. It's one of those "I know where I was when I found out" moments in my life.

I was a huge Beatles fan at the time. They were the first real band I became a fan of. Before them all I listened to was kids records, Goofy Greats and cartoon music and such. One day while in 4th grade I stumbled onto my dads record collection. I came across "Meet the Beatles" and was instantly hooked.

I can remember begging my mom to drive me to the record store and buying more Beatles albums like "Sgt. Peppers", "A Hard Days Night" and "Yellow Submarine". I loved these guys.

Flash forward to that December morning. I was 11 at the time, 7th grade I think. I got up to delivery my newspapers. I had a morning edition route. So it's like 5:00 in the morning and I see that headline "John Lennon Shot Dead". Wow, what a shock. At the time that was a huge deal in my life. I think it may have been the first time the cruelties of life impacted me directly.

I still love the Beatles to this day.

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I'm crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.

Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus,

Mister City P'liceman sitting
Pretty little p'licemen in a row.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don't come, you get a tan
From standing in the English rain.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus,

Expert texpert choking smokers,
Don't you think the joker laughs at you? (ho ho ho, he, he he, ha, ha, ha)
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied.
I'm crying.

I was in college at the time (yes I am that old), I remember hearing about it from some people on campus but not believing it.  I figured it was a joke or something but when I got home I heard it on the radio.  What a waste.  I have a hard time believing that two of them are gone now.

Yeah, and the ones that are left can't make any decent music anymore.
