December 8, 1980

30 years ago today, John Lennon was senselessly murdered. Murdered. Murdered!

My stomach still churns when I think about it.

The previous generation had John F. Kennedy's assassination. We had John Lennon being murdered. Senseless. Disgusting. Appalling. Nauseating. How can something like that have happened?

Thirty years and I still feel this loss more than any of the others. Joe Strummer, Jerry Garcia, Miles Davis, even Johnny Cash - none feels as big or as stupid a loss as this one.

the stupidity and the senselessness of the Lennon murder is so much more heinous than any other r n r death. it wasn't due to drugs or age or accident. Just sheer brutality.
