24 years ago today was John Lennons assination.

I've always been a huge Beatles fan while my Grandfather hated them. Said they introduce drugs to the culture and dispised the long hair. When he heard, all he said was that he was sorry and that no human deserves that.

We were trying to raise 4 kids then and had no time for such trivialities. I put them in about the same category as Elvis Presley.

Never could get into their moosic.....born and raised country might have sumpin to do with it I s'pose. He sure did not deserve the bullets he caught tho despite his musical or political leanings. IMHO :^)

I do not know that I hated them. I was a teenager then. I never did see what all the fuss was about. I could go to town Sat. night and hear the local amatures sign and many of them were as good or better than the Beattles. Didn't have to buy a ticket. As Les said your grandfather was wise.

The Beatles introduced drugs? Hmmm I thought it was the Rolling Stones :)

Cant say as I ever liked Lennons political leanings....socialist comes to mind...but I did enjoy the music.

Too bad they didnt shoot Yoko instead...

yep, 6" to the right and Chapman would have been a hero!

i got a red neck, but i swear those two songs- 'here comes the sun' and 'while my guitar gently weeps' are near favorites.
