John Lennon's death is one of those explosive moments in your memory
that you know EXACTLY where you were when you heard the former Beatle had been shot.
I was living on Ohio Avenue in Westwood, not far from UCLA and was returning home from dinner with a new beau, a British lad -- as was Lennon -- when Mike and I heard it announced on the car radio. I became numb and for the rest of the evening we talked about not only the shocking news, but how John's life had positively affected us.
Don't miss the new film, NOWHERE BOY, just released starring the gifted actor who portrays Lennon, Aaron Johnson.
Had John lived, I wonder how his creative spirit would have continued to touch me . . .
