December 8, 1980; is one of the day’s you could honestly say music died. The day when Mark David Chapman shot John Lennon outside Lennon’s Manhattan apartment. A day that millions of people flock together each year to remember the former Beatle. Where were you the day Lennon got shot? Do you remember? I was 5 so I am sure it was big news in my house since my father was a Beatles fan. But, as far as me, I was too young to remember the details exactly.
Lennon was just returning to his home around 11 p.m from the Record Plant Studio where he was recording new music. He was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center after being shot five times by his assailant,who had just gotten the singer’s autograph a mere 5 hours earlier.
Let’s take a few moments and just Imagine that one of the music industry’s greatest artists isn’t gone.
R.I.P. John Lennon….You are missed to this day!!!
