Today the 34th anniversary of the night the legendary John Lennon was gunned down by he who shall not be named outside his home in New York City.
Here’s what John had to say about critics;
“These critics with the illusions they’ve created about artists — it’s like idol worship,” he said. “They only like people when they’re on their way up. … I cannot be on the way up again.
“What they want is dead heroes, like Sid Vicious and James Dean. I’m not interesting in being a dead (expletive) hero. .. So forget ’em, forget ’em.”
