30th Anniversary of John Lennon's Murder
Not a happy day. On the one hand, it's nice that John Lennon is still appreciated, on the other hand all of the media attention to the 30th anniversary of his murder makes the pain all the more intense. It's as if all of the 30 years of grieving have suddenly rolled up into one ball of ache.
And ever since 1986 I wonder if one day I'll turn on the Internet and see the same thing happen to Peter Gabriel. He often wanders about without a bodyguard. One thing I know -- I can't survive another 30th anniversary of a death of a man I love and worry about.
There have been many tribute songs to Lennon but Paul Simon's was the best, in my opinion.
