Subject: RE: BS: 30th anniversary, murder of John Lennon
I recall walking around in a daze after I had heard about it. I do not think he would have gone on to make any more great records, but I would have wished him a happy and contented life and the chance to see his children grow up.
It is hard to make any sense of his death even now. Any of us could have the misfortune to be killed by someone, who is mentally ill. It is unlikely, but possible. There was just no precedent to prepare us for the loss of John Lennon. Above all I miss his voice - the sound of him speaking as much as the sound of him singing.
