As Gram's younger sister, known as Little Avis, would later recall, “Things were mighty strange around the house.”

Yes, so so so sad and so hard to believe it has been 10 years. Last year was the 20th anniversary of John Lennon's passing. On the bright side, Sir Paul got married about a month ago.

Very poignant time for some of us. Both John and George died during the same time of the year. I had always thought Ringo would be the first to go because he had always been sickly since his childhood.I never saw the Beatles perform live but I did see George, along with Eric Clapton, perform in Japan's Tokyo Dome, circa 1990. It was great. People were dancing and crying in the aisle while he sang "My Sweet Lord."

Tracers----Last year was the 30th year from John Lennon's passing. Sad anniversaries, in any case.I wonder if the truth about John's killing will ever be publicly known?

Im guessing George and E.C. in Tokyo playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" had to be amazing beyond description. Your very fortunate to have seen/heard the two of them together.

When my uncle died last year, his 5 yr old great-grandson said, "Now Papa's in Heaven with some of the Beatles".

Yo, wood, you pretty much know my viewpoint. I do not wish to get in a Rand/Auth style public debate with you, LOL. Please read all of Harrison Livingstone, Harold Weisburg, Penn Jones, Roger Mars, David Lifton, Edward J. Epstein, and Jim Garrison and PM me.

Jim Marrs too. I do agree 100% though that we'll probably never know the full story, much like Z.
