John Lennon And Other Musicians Who Were Victims Of Gun Violence

Today would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday.

The former Beatle was shot and killed  in front of his New York City home. It's hard to believe that was almost 35 years ago.

He was far from the only musician to lose his life to gun violence. Here's a look at others that died because of a gun.


To celebrate his birthday, tomorrow we'll look at some of John's greatest songs. Here's a look at a piece I wrote on the anniversary of John Lennon's death.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
