Time Flies

Today would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday.

Seventy years old.  I was fourteen when he was gunned down in front of his apartment on West 72nd Street and Central Park West in front of The Dakota.

It's eerie to think that I am now four years older than Lennon was when he was killed. And strange that 30 years have already passed since that day. But I'll leave the details of that night and the event s that followed for a post on December 8th.

In the meantime, mark your calendars for November 22nd, when PBS will air LENNONYC, an American Masters episode, and check out this NPR interview.

It still angers me how senseless that crime was especially after he gave his killer an autograph.
