It was 25 years ago this week -- January 16th to January 23rd, 1988 -- that George Harrison scored a surprise Number One hit with "Got My Mind Set On You," which holds the distinction -- to date -- of being the final solo Beatle Number One hit.
Classic rockers are featuring quite a bit in the plots of movies these days. Last month, 'Not Fade Away,' a film about New Jersey teenagers inspired by the Rolling Stones to form a band, opened in theaters. This spring will see the beginning of production on 'Imagine,' in which a musician receives a letter of encouragement from John Lennon.
We realize this piece of news borders on tasteless, but one of the most macabre pieces of rock memorabilia in history is for sale. NME is reporting that the copy of John Lennon's 1980 album 'Double Fantasy' that he signed for Mark David Chapman hours before the ex-Beatle was killed by Chapman, is being auctioned off. And it is of a sad coincidence that this news arrived on the anniversary of that tragic event.
It's hard to believe that it's been 32 years tonight that John Lennon was murdered in New York City. For people my age and older, it's one of those moments that you always remember where you were when you heard the news. Needless to say, it wasn't the way we get information today.
