    Every year John Lennon's death sinks in more and more.  I still haven't accepted it.

      and passed out sitting on the toilet. JL was set up. He wasn't assassinated, he was murdered. He predicted it and said it would be hatred & jealousy that would nail him. He was right. T and R!!

        died.  We had a wake.  And that was that.

        John Lennon, I am still in denial.  Each year, it's like, that's right.  A very strange feeling.

        was released I read that he and Yoko were recording again and I had some serious misgivings, though not relating to the possible quality of the new music.

        I said to myself, NO! Don't open yourself up to the slings and arrows of dumbass rock critics who will only shoot you down! You've got it made now. Relax and enjoy your life.

        I never thought my "premonition" of an "unpleasantness" would be so much more intense and be fulfilled by a psycho.

        The critics were the least of his worries and they appreciated the new music more than I expected. At the time of his murder, he had just gotten word that the album had reached #1, something he had never achieved as a solo artist. I am glad that he had that satisfaction, at least.
