30 Years Ago

John Lennon was murdered. Some of my earliest interests in rock music involved the Beatles, or at least their later work. I think I had just picked up the 7" single "Just Like Starting Over/Kiss, Kiss, Kiss" not long before he was shot. That incident made playing that record bittersweet to say the least. While I tend to view the Beatles and a lot of their post-breakup work as over-hyped, there is still a place in my heart for many of the tunes John wrote and performed.

Note: I very badly typoed the headline last night. It's fixed.

It was 30 years ago, 1980. Great musician though, it was a shame to lose him due to some crazy lunatic.

I knew I shouldn't blog right before going to bed - and aging myself prematurely in the process. Will correct the headline.
