I remember where I was when I first heard that John Lennon died. It was during our first class after lunch at school. Our teacher, Mrs. Concepcion, came in and announced that Lennon was shot and killed. A number of us in class were fans of the Beatles and we struggled to make sense of what happened. It affected me not only the rest of the day but for the next week or so.
Decades later, I was able to undertake my Beatles/Lennon pilgrimage from New York to Liverpool to London. One stop remains... Hamburg.
With a Beatles poster from 1992 that showed all their albums. Still have it!
