I was in Central Park a few days after ...
I was watching Monday night football when Howard Cosell announced it , couldn’t believe it.
I was delivering mattresses and was wondering why the radio was playing non-stop Beatles music !
Remember that day vividly. A bit of my childhood was gone.
i was on my way to a rehearsal when the announcer broke in to say he'd been shot... i was still playing Double Fantasy over and over when it happened.. i'd only the record a week or two... i was devastated. i was also 18 so still holding people up as real heroes...
these were my favorites
and this (i've never been a yoko hater)
I was probably running the Associated Press global Network @ 50 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC at the exact time. I was the 4-to-12 PM network manager.
As I remember, All hell broke loose.
What a waste.
My mother dropped dead 12 days later of a massive heart attack.
She was a Beatles fan. She took my sister and my first cousin to see the Lads at Shea.
I remember that I was sitting in my bedroom (still at home with the folks), listening to the Dr. Demento radio show, and smoking medicinal herbs. They broke in to announce it. I will never forget that evening.
Thanks for sharing your story TD
So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing
One of my favorites:
I haven’t listened to this in ages !
Forgot how great it is .
I was 9, and had the unfortunate luck of having a dad who's name is also Mark Chapman. So although I was too young to be a Beatles fan, it was very topical in our home/extended family. Hard to believe it will be 40 years next year
And, another favorite:
I was drivi g to work when I heard the news.
I'll never the feeling that came over me.
Of all people...him...wtf.
I was in Hanau Germany. Bought Double Fantasy soon as it came out. When I heard the news I went through a lot of emotions. Sadness, anger and depression. I still don't understand why that idiot (whose name should not be mentioned) did what he did. It was totally senseless.
I was in Downtown LA. Had a gig at Madame Wong's in Chinatown.
Heard it on the radio. Played the gig.
I was dead at the time.

I think Imagine is not only the best song released by a member of The Beatles during their solo careers but better than anything the band ever put out AND maybe the defining song of humanity. He was the true genius of the band IMO.
