Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Every Song We Played Was for the Late Great Johnny Ace

Because I still miss him. Thirty-five years ago, the day the music died.

I didn't always agree with his politics. But he lived his life in the public eye, and he dedicated himself to making the rest of our lives better, if he could.

Everybody else will play Imagine or Happy Xmas (War Is Over) today, so I doubt you need me to pile on. Instead, here's a song from Paul Simon that encapsulates that day 35 years ago.
