Thread Name: John Lennon, gone 20 years
Subject: RE: John Lennon, gone 20 years
Thanks, Steve. While I was packing for our recent move, I found the old Playboy Interview magazine which had come out that week; the People Magazine Tribute Issue, and several newspaper accounts I'd saved.

My friend and I were in such shock, we left work for the day, drove out to the ranch with a bottle of something and drank the afternoon and half the night away, singing and grieving, not only for him, but for another loss of our generation as a whole.

Even though we lived thousands of miles apart after that, she and I always telephoned one another on this day, as we will do, today.
