Feel free to start a Justin Bieber (or whatever crappy rap artist no one will remember 10 years from now) thread if you like Topo.
this thread should b called "30 yrs of john lennon threads"
it all bn said b4
Lot of good music in those threads. Not as much as Hendrix or James Brown but pretty damn good for a little hooligan who loved Chuck Berry.
Wasn't it December 9th?
But it's a life worth remembering. So fuck off with your cynicism.
um wasnt dis thread dun on his bday 2?

I was seven when Lennon was shot.
My mom kept me home from school the next day, not because she was a grief-stricken fan, but because she wanted me to keep her company on the long bus ride to the record store. She was convinced any Beatles record pressed before Lennon was shot would be worth a fortune one day, and she wanted to grab one while she could.
She bought a 45 of The Ballad of John and Yoko/Old Brown Shoe.
It was one of many questionable investments my mom has made over the years, along with the widescreen edition of Titanic on VHS, and my post-secondary education.
Mr G has a massive record collection of all OG releases, including a 45 of the Beatles (released as the Beat Boys I think) with Tony Sheridan singing Ain't She Sweet and McCartney singing My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean on the B side
It's supposed to be worth some $$ but
Any chance Mr. G is my real dad?
If you're half-black, then yes
