I am a born & bred North Carolinian but I have lived most of my life in the South. It is the same with food. When you go from one state to another, it takes you a little bit to get used to the different things that you like eating. In North Carolina we have a ton of Southern food that we are used to. It’s also the same with music.
But I digress.
Like many things in life, you grow up hearing the same music that you grew up with. Just as the foods that you grew up with are the same foods that you grew up with, the music that you grew up with is the same music you grew up with. I don’t know why this happens but when you grow up in the South, you are always picking up on this music. This goes back to how much people are from the same stock.
This is where it gets interesting. I grew up listening to The Allman Brothers Band and in high school they were on my all time favorite album of all time. I would go to a concert and be like, “I am going to kill this guy.” And he would be like, “Just get away from my girl.” I would be like, “I need to make this guy pay for what he did.
I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of reading a book about the book “The Last Time We Saw Him” by John Lennon. It’s kind of a strange thing to read about but I know what John’s writing is. It’s about the human condition, the ability to live, to move, change, and to find the places you want to be.
The Last Time We Saw Him starts with the singer John Lennon leaving the house in San Francisco, California. He’s on his way to a concert but the car breaks down and he ends up in a field. He realizes he can’t go home because the field is too dangerous and he’s stuck. He decides to make himself at home in this field so he can rest and recuperate.
John Lennon is the most famous person to ever live and has been the epitome of the American dream since he joined the Beatles in 1958. He is also one of the most famous people in the world. As a result he is the subject of a series of autobiographies and films. His life is a constant source of inspiration and motivation.
Lennon lived a fairly normal life until a tragedy occurred on his birthday in 1967. He was in London when a car bomb exploded at his hotel and killed a number of people. A few hours later, Lennon was standing on his balcony at the same hotel, watching the city burn. He realized what was happening, and decided it was his one chance to make a difference. He decided to walk to the edge of the hotel and jump into the burning building.
When he walked the last few steps, he saw his cousin, a fellow actor, standing in the parking lot. He saw him kill himself. He was so nervous that he thought he might as well have died, but then he remembered that the car bomb was a friend of Lennon’s who was having a party at the hotel’s restaurant. He stood there with that friend and watched the police arrive. They were investigating the attack on Lennon in the park. He was shocked.
It’s hard to say why the police would be looking for him, but since he wasn’t in the party, the police would have been looking for him already.
