John Lennon – The Voice of a Generation

Today marks the tragic and senseless murder of John Lennon. A man that represented so much to so many was gunned down by a maniac 28 years ago. It all started with the music, even innocent songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand” were seen as controversial at the time but as a generation grew and began to ask questions, John did as well and let the world know through his music. He just wanted the everyone to give peace a chance but was viewed as a threat by the government and many others, sadly. Seen as more than just an entertainer but a leader for the peace movement in politics and humanity, John lived a life both admiration and condemnation.

Twenty eight years later people still gather in at the Strawberry Fields memorial in Central Park, just across the road from the Dakota. I often wonder what John would be doing now, what would his views be on the current situation with the world. What music would he have made over the past two decades. We’ll never know but John’s spirit and memory remains alive in the music he created and the mark he left on the world and the minds of millions.

“We all shine on, like the moon and the stars and sun…”


This day in classic rock:
1995 – The surviving members of the Grateful Dead disband the group following Jerry Garcia’s death in August.
