    I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

    Life is what happens when you’re making other plans.

    Nobody told me there’s be days like these.

    I read the news today oh boy.


    So many great lyrics. So much great music.

    Such a waste.

    I was on my way to band practice when I heard the news that day. I told the band.
    They were shocked.All we could do was plug in our instruments and play,

    I was on my way home from work when I heard of John’s murder in front of Yoko and then broke the news to my wife. We were both stunned. It still bothers me deeply as does Dimebag’s on stage murder.

    Got myself banned from the The Gear Page for expressing my thoughts, so I best shut up now about....

    Me neither, I remember the exact moment when I found out he was murdered. I was talking to a shipmate in my shop on good old CV-61 patrolling the Indian Ocean when it came over AFRTS. It's still hard to fathom.

    I think I said this the last time or two this anniversary was noted, but I cried the whole next day at work. So senseless.

    I was like 12 or 13. I remember the other kids getting on the schoolbus in the morning sad because they'd heard the news. I clearly remember thinking "sheesh it's not like when Elvis died 3 years ago, get a grip"
