37 years ago tonight, John Lennon of the Beatles was gunned down mercilessly by a deranged scumbag. The murder shocked the world. We’re still mourning the loss now.
16 years ago, George Harrison lost his battle with cancer. The day we lost another Beatle (and Traveling Wilbury). He left us with a lot of great music. I cried heavily when I heard that George had died.
Happy 77th Birthday, John Lennon! (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980)
Today would have been John’s 77th birthday. We all know why he was taken away from us at such a young age. It’s very sad that there are people in this country that will coldly murder someone for no reason since John’s murder. Just last week, a madman in a hotel shot down and killed 59 people and injured more 500 others during a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Why can’t some give peace a chance?
Btw, Happy Birthday to Sean Lennon (John and Yoko’s son)!
Happy Birthday, Ringo Starr!!!
The Beatles drummer is asking for peace and love on his birthday!
Coming this fall, Ringo has a new album!!!
Happy 75th Birthday, Paul McCartney!
Today is Paul’s birthday. He hits 75 this year. Hope you’re having a great time on your B-Day, Paul!
I’ve been working on this secret project for more than a year just after I bought my laptop computer back in December 2015. The new book is called:
The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian:
What a Autistic Black Woman Sees
I went to the publisher called BookBaby to create both a paperback book and an ebook. It includes the blog posts I made when the orignal Uncommon Bostonian blog was connected to The Boston Now dailey newspaper back in 2007 to 2008. It also has some of the essays I’ve written in recent years and some of my black and white paintings that I made in the last couple of years. I write about the Beatles, the soap One Live to Live, the Dave Clark Five, the Monkees, and other things. I created the artwork on the cover. It’s my Purple Haze painting.

Happy 74th Birthday, George Harrison! (February 25, 1943 – November 29, 2001)
Wherever you are in the universe, George, we all hoping you’re celebrating with John Lennon and Roy Orbison. As we all know, George was a member of the Beatles and the Traveling Wilburys.
