It Was 30 Years Ago Today

 I was in the library  at Martha Brown Junior High when I heard the news 30 years ago.

I don't remember much about junior high, but I remember that day. I was 12, and had been listening to my parent's Beatles albums for years at that point. In the  years since, I have become a musician, a writer, a dad and a human being completely touched by John's music. I owe him so much. It is so hard to believe that I am actually older than he was when he was taken from here.

Today my playlist will include Mother, In My Life, Norwegian Wood, God, Working Class Hero, Isolation, Oh My Love, Dear Prudence, Jealous Guy, Crippled Inside, Happiness Is a Warm Gun, Sexy Sadie, I Want You(She's So Heavy) and of course, Across The Universe.

Make one of your own.
