Wow...seems like it was only 32 years ago...
I guess people at the bar don't appreciate his genius
I'm not very appreciative of his supposed "genius".
Boring Story: I had just turned 15, 2 days before, and one of my presents was the "Red Album", because I was just starting to really get into the Beatles heavily. I was playing it before going to school and my mom brought me the morning paper.....

I think the term "genius" is overused and I don't believe Lennon deserves the title. Perhaps George Harrison is more deserving (IMO). It's just my perception.

Too bad Lennon was cut down by some mental asshole but I just don't put him on a pedestal as a god.
