Do you recall where you were, what you were doing when you heard the news that day?

I was at college in my dorm when my friend Ivan called from home to pass the sad news.
My 1st thought was: who would've ever thought in 1964 that this man would go from pop icon to assassinated martyr? The wild, improbable ride of John Lennon.

I remember feeling bad for my aunt because she would always tell me how the beatles were the best band ever and she was crying.
Her son whom was born in March of '81 is named Michael John -- John after John Lennon

In the radio station at Berlin High playing classical music when it came across the teletype. I was really shocked and made the decision to lock the door and put on the white album. I then patched in to the school intercom system and shared the sad news. I kept playing Beatle albums and left the intercom on but not too loud. I stayed there crying and skipped all my classes. No one came to stop me and I did not get into trouble. I still have all the teletypes.
Damn thats pretty awesome .. good on you fella

I was in fifth grade and I didn't know who he was. I was assigned to read the news that day and thought it would be funny if I called him John Lemon instead of John Lennon. My teacher was not amused. I was a quite the little dick that day. Not my finest moment.

We were blown away...so sad. So fucked up. Such a cryin' shame. Truly one of the hugest tragedies in all of rock 'n' roll history.
