I was a junior in college when John Lennon was killed.
When I heard the news I ran to a phone and called my middle brother, Geoffrey, whose favorite Beatle was John Lennon and told him the news.
He was silent for a moment, and then said "I always thought he would die this way."
Here, 40 years later, we shared the love we saved and gave with other fans. I would have liked to have met Lennon in person and talked with him. I am sure he would have some wonderfully-phrased wisdom for me ... for us.
In this show, Einhorn shares pieces of the experience on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
My brother plays guitar and sings, and I play recorder and sing. I am interviewed towards the end of the show. I hope you enjoy it.
5/17/20 - Ethel W. Owens 97th Birthday Song -- "She Loves You"
May 17, 2020: Our Mom has been in a New Jersey nursing home since long before COVID hit. They did a good job there and, as of Mom's 97th birthday, she was doing OK!
The Owens brothers, with various children and significant others, gathered to celebrate this great birthday as we often do ... with song! This song was the encore number to a 30-minute concert -- unrehearsed, of course!
October 27, 2020: Mom joined the ancestors. COVID did not do her in, just fatigue from a long and rich life. Read about Mom at https://www.ethelwerfelowens.net/ .
11/2014 - Benefit Performance:
"Peace Like A River" OBB-The Owens Brothers Band
New Jersey Peace Action held it's 2014 annual event at The Maplewood High School in New Jersey. OBB was cajoled and coerced by MOM (who else?) to provide "meaningful entertainment." There is nothing like watching mature folks groove to an electric guitar!
At this gig, OBB members included the "Core 6," brother Mitty, Selah Spruiell, Kelly Skaller, Darryl Clark, Barry Kornhauser and me, as well as Ned Matura (lead guitar) and Dominick Gagliardi (drums). Dean Freedman was handling sound and cheerleading -- along with Mom! We were missing brother Geoffrey or had yet to recruit other folks (Wendy Ward, Doug Murphy, Anthony Gaddy)!
