il 75mo compleanno di john lennon
Anche a me è capitato di passare dinanzi l’abitazione di John Lennon a New York e vedere dove venne ucciso da uno squilibrato il 8 di dicembre del 1980.Ricordo che ci passai in una sera estiva all’imbrunire,in una zona molto vicina al Central Park.
Che altro puoi dire dinanzi a questi eventi se non che la vita è strana,non saprei.
Non ci andai in pellegrinaggio ma mi successe,passeggiando.
Il compleanno sarebbe stato il 9 ottobre,era del 1940.
Non era il mio idolo musicale ma una persona assassinata senza alcun motivo forse anche grazie a come vendono le armi negli Stati Uniti,e vedendo parte del concerto dedicatogli dagli appassionati pochi giorni fa come si dice in linguaggio web…condivido.
