December 8, 1980

Beatle John Lennon died forty years ago, today. He was murdered by an obsessive fan. I find it odd that this "fan" didn't seem to find his hero's message of peace and love.

December 8, 1980. I was in high school. That morning, as most mornings, I had Barrie radio station CKBB blaring from my Sanyo. The news came on with the top story.

My appreciation for the Beatles came a little later, but I well understood that super group and who John Lennon was and what he stood for. It seems so long ago....but like yesterday.
