Like the title says as of today Dec. 8th is a day of remembrance of 4 important musicians in the music industry who inspired and changed us all over the years. These are musicians who are having birthdays today and having death anniversaries.
The Birthday musicians are Jim Morrison (Born: Dec. 8th, 1943) and Gregg Allman (Born: Dec. 8th 1947).
The Death Anniversary musicians are Dimebag Darrell (who passed 15 years ago today) and John Lennon (who passed 39 years ago today).
All 4 of these musicians were definitely important to my life so I’ll never forget any of them. Gregg Allman passed a few years ago so now he joins these men in heaven.
I’m a huge Doors fan, a huge Allman Bros. fan and a huge Pantera fan. Of course, I listened to a lot of Lennon’s solo stuff too.
Dec. 8th is always an important day of music because of these guys and I think they are the Mt. Rushmore of music for sure.
Dec. 8th is always an important day of the music industry. Why? It’s because this day is the Anniversary Deaths of John Lennon and Dimebag Darrell and the birthday of Jim Morrison.
John Lennon wasn’t my favorite Beatle but he was still a legend and we should never forget what happened to him. We should never forget what happened to Dimebag. We should never forget Jim Morrison either.
I always honor these guys every Dec. 8th and would keep doing it every year. They were very important to music. Always remember that.
George Harrison has always been my favorite Beatle but I listened to John’s music over the years. I like John’s solo stuff and the songs he wrote with the Beatles. Everybody wants to post John’s “Imagine” which is a great tune, no doubt but my favorite Lennon song is “Working Class Hero”.
34 years ago today, we lost one of the Beatles and that is none other than, John Lennon. John and Yoko were returning to their NYC apartment where they were staying and John was shot by Mark David Chapman as the couple was just entering the building. John was rushed to a nearby hospital and was pronounced dead later on.
Like most, I’m a pretty big Beatles fan. I have most of their records and trying to collect them all. I’m also a huge fan of John’s solo stuff as well.
