R.I.P. John Lennon
Posted by LOTGK on December 10, 2011
December 8, 1980, I was upstairs in my room listening to the radio with my headsets on high volume. The radio disc jockey broke in and announced that John Lennon was just gunned down in front of his apartment in New York City. He was shot four times in the back. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
For some reason, I’m feeling old today. I grew up listening to the Beatles. I just knew that the “Paul Is Dead” was all a hoax. I was pissed off when Yoko broke up the band.
Lennon would have been 71 years old.
Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin’ to do
It’s up to you, yeah you
