John Lennon Murdered 40 Years Ago Today#1
Posted: 12/8/20 at 7:09pm

I was sitting in a bar in Denver Colorado watching MNF when Howard Cosell announced to everyone that John Lennon had been shot and killed. I remember finishing my drink and leaving the bar immediately in sadness. Looking back, it was such a shame because Lennon had gotten back into making music again and who knows what more he may have done. Also, a wife and two young boys lost their father. It was incredibly sad that it happened in NYC which he had learned to love. For those of you not around at that time, it was such a tragedy to everyone especially my generation.

The Times posted a picture of Yoko and John with John holding Sean. It was just a little surreal looking at it as I met Yoko and Sean 3 years ago and chatted with them for a bit. I was a nervous wreck inside.

 

Just an aside....I lived in Denver for over 19 years. Wasn't there when Lennon was shot. I had just moved into my apartment in Philly when it happened.

Was watching a morning news show and they referred to this site but gave the wrong information. 

I may have to grab an Imagine Tee shirt and I like the lamp. I don't need another mug, but looking at that also.

"Just an aside....I lived in Denver for over 19 years."

Where did you live in Denver? I lived a couple of miles from the "Denver Tech Center" and worked in IT for United Bank Of Denver.

Very cool area to live in, loved the Golden Dome capital. I lived in Denver 1979-85, the uptown places I liked to go to were "Marlowes" and "Josephina's"  The fun places to go out to where I lived were "Knicks", "Proof Of The Pudding" and "No Frills Grill" - lol.

I was walking the campus at Syracuse University, and heard people singing "Give Peace a Chance".  I soon found out why.
