Paul McCartney Remembers 'Shock' of John Lennon Death

Paul McCartney and John Lenon in 1963

Just found this article on the BBC Arts and Entertainment website.  I can't believe that it is 34 years today since Lennon died.  So sad :-(

Sir Paul McCartney has recalled the "horrific" moment when he learned of the murder of his former Beatles bandmate John Lennon.

Speaking on the Jonathan Ross Show on ITV, he also said he felt "very lucky" that he eventually made up with Lennon after the rifts that split the pair.

Lennon was shot outside his apartment in New York on 8 December 1980.

"I just for days couldn't think that he was gone... It was just a huge shock," said Sir Paul.

He said: "I was at home and I got a phone call. It was early in the morning... It was just so horrific, you couldn't take it in and I couldn't take it in."

Sir Paul said it was "very difficult" to relay the news to his own family.

He added: "For me it was just so sad that I wasn't going to see him again and we weren't going to hang."

27) What is to the right of you?

My desk is an absolute mess at the moment. It goes something like this : book A History of English Literature; another book Dickens In His Time; FdA English Studies Diary Year 2; a book stand; 2 scarves and a pair of fingerless gloves (it can get cold in here); a folder and 2 ongoing assignment folders.

Oh and this place mat.

Walking In My Shoes (Live on Letterman)

Rockin' out wid da Mode!! - my favourite song for all time. For me, the lyrics just nail it for me. Long live Depeche Mode @-->-->--

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
