Default Where were you when...

Some of us remember where we were when we heard about Kennedy being shot. Or when Kurt Cobain died.

so this thread is dedicated to: "where where you when...." (related to the Beatles of course)

Let me start with the first question:



And so tomorrow it will be 50 years since The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show.

In my blog I ask the question: where were you at that time? itwas50yearsago.blogspot.be/2014/02/where-were-you-on-february-9th-1964.html

Where were you when The Beatles appeared for the first time on the Ed Sullivan show?

I'd love to hear your stories, here or on my blog!

I personally was not yet born, but my parents tell me they saw something about it on the news in those days. Everybody was going BeatleCrazy areound that time.

Harold & Louise had to wait a day to watch their son and company courtesy of the BBC due to the five hour time difference.

1 year old. I don't remember if I was still in diapers or not. Matter of fact I don't remember 1963-64 at all!

As far as Cobein, I don't remember either!

I think my generation will never forget where we were when MJ, Princess Diana, JFK Jr., Pope John Paul, Whitney Houston, or Princess Grace died. Obviously I'm a Gen Xer. I was 13, when John Lennon got killed, and 12 when President Reagan was almost killed. I recall since I attended a Catholic school, we were let out early when the Pope got shot in 1981.

Lennon shot: Heard the news delivered by Howard Cosell while watching Monday Night Football. At first I thought he was kidding it was so unbelievable.
Ed Sullivan: I was 8 or so, remember watching and hearing comments from my family about their funny long hair, but I was thinking "Listen to that music!!!" I had never heard anything like it.

I used to fall asleep to the sound of Q102 in Cincinnati. I was awakened in the middle of the night to the sound of a Beatles medley. I hit the record button on my Realistic tape recorder. Then I heard the stations most popular DJ on in the middle of the night announcing that John Lennon had been murdered. I just let the cassette roll as I sat up in utter shock. I listened to the news reports come in all morning as they became available. Until it was time to go to school. I just remember being in a complete daze the entire day. I couldn't even bring myself to accept it was true for yrs. I was sure it was a faked death to start a new life of privacy. I may still have that cassette someplace in my childhood home.

JFK Death _ Don't remember, 11-1963,almost 5
Sullivan Show_Don't remember, 2-1964,age 5
MLK_remember vividly 4-1968
RFK_remember vividly 6-1968 (died on D-Day, 6-6-1968)

1968 was a very rough year, Nightly news brought Nam into your living room. felt so sad/bad for all those that had to go there...and for all the people that lived there.

GFord_attempted assassination (twice)1970s
RWR_attempted assassination, 1981, vivid memory...was working and remember a guy i was working with said, "should have killed him"...knew then how much RWR was hated....he was a young man, former Army...he hated RWR.

I'm sure there are more, but the one that effected me the most was John...so senseless.
