Wish you were here.

I think of this as my own personal theme song.
John Lennon would have been 67.
He's been dead for 28 years.
Or surely since only yesterday

I wish he was still here.

Thank you for these videos.

I can still remember hearing that John was dead. I was a Junior in high school working on an end-of-semester report.

I couldn't believe it then and still don't understand it now.

He was a "one and only" that is for sure.
So sad his life eneded so early...such a waste. He could be here still doing GOOD things in his life and making a difference.
Love the songs.

Had a day in Liverpool in the summer. Wonderful. Last went after the war. Rough times, plenty of unemployment.Remember a man being tied up and put in a sack. The idea was to throw him in the Mersey if his mate didn't collect enough off the audience. He never did get thrown in. I was quite disappointed! I was a strange child. Happy days.

thanks for the memories. he and a handful of other greats, really filled the world with deep sorrow when their lives ended too soon.

Even I remember when he was shot...and I was only 7 (my mom always played music in the house while we were growing up, so the Beatles were well known to me at that age).

I can't believe how time flies...
