The Death of John Lennon 25 Years Later

I am not sure if I have mentioned it much thus far, but I, like much of the rest of the world, am a huge Beatles fan. In fact, it is so cliche that I am almost embarrassed to admit it. Anyway, I bought the special edition Life did on John Lennon's life to commerate the 25th anniversary of his death.

He died 10 days before I was born, and I have always found it strange that I am so in love with a band whose "lead singer" died before I was even born.

Heck, they even ceased to be a band more than 10 years before I was even born. Anyway, in my opinion, the Beatles have always seemed to be a little like breathing... the most natural thing in the world. I can't remember a time when I did not know their songs (thanks to my Mom, who probably listened to them a lot in the week before I was born), even if I distinctly remember asking my parents who the Beatles were when I was 8 years old.

Funny, they were having an argument regarding the Beatles... My mom has always loved them and I have always felt that my dad was just a tad bit jealous in a strange way. In fact, my dad is one of the few people I knew who really doesn't at least like the Beatles music.

Enough for now... I know this is incredibly boring stuff, but I have always felt that I am certainly not alone with regards to my thoughts on and my love for the Beatles. I have to admit, Paul is my favorite - although John is an extremely close second.
