PAST to PRESENT: George Harrison & Ringo Starr from 1988

I came across this great Michael Aspel interview from 1988 with the understated George Harrison & the off his face Ringo..some really great one liners and the frankness is something which feels quite refreshing.

John Lennon Special

In the final hour of Monday Matters Jason had the John Lennon hour – which included music as well as an edited 20 minutes of the final interview John ever did with the BBC’s Andy Peebles on 6th December 1980 – two days later he was shot five times by 25 year old Mark Chapman outside the Dakota building in New York City.

Chapman had been stalking Lennon for days and asked for an autograph as Lennon walked through the courtyard. After he signed a piece of paper Chapman fired. Lennon was pronounced dead from a massive loss of blood at 11.30pm.
