Why should it happen to anyone for that matter.

I think two of the best interviews he did before his temporary retirement from the music business were the Tom Snyder interview from 1975 and the interview with Bob Harris on the Old Grey Whistle Test also in '75. I'd seen the Snyder interview many times over the years but until recently I had only seen clips of the Harris interview and watched it in its entirety the other day. Great stuff!

Thanks for the link. I will watch this tonight. John Lennon's shocking death tore the hearts out of millions of fans, and made the world seem a little more fearful and unfair. The leader of the Beatles, a group that brought joy to so many, did not deserve to be taken that way.
