Where Were You Thirty Years Ago?
Hard to imagine that it has been thirty years since the rebel Beatle was taken from us on December 8.
It was a Monday night. Tom Frasso & I were at The Phyrst, a favorite student watering hole in State College, Pa. Red Rose Cotillion was performing their set of Grateful Dead and Neil Young covers.
The TV behind the bar was on with the sound off. The 11:00 news was on.... At some point I noticed pictures of John on the tube. With no sound & no graphics screaming the news it was not clear why they were running the photos.
About 10 minutes later, the band announced that John had been murdered.
Studio 12 performers - please be prepared with a song or two by John Lennon.
