It was late in the evening December 8th 1980 when tragedy would strike and change the course of music history forever. John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono had just arrived at their New York apartment when an unstable Mark David Chapman, a man that John Lennon signed an autograph for earlier that night would shoot John Lennon. Lennon was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital shortly after, but it was all too late. John Lennon was declared dead just as soon as he arrived.
John Lennon was truly one of the world’s best people, not just as a musician, but also as a person. He was truly one of the most beautiful and peaceful souls to ever walk the earth and he is responsible for some of music’s most timeless and cherished songs. Me personally, I wasn’t born during this time, but my father describes it as one of the most saddening times in. It will not only be forever known as a day of sadness, but also a day where family, friends, and fans alike were united to mourn the icon. And even to this day, he is truly missed. RIP John Winston Lennon. He was 40 years of age.
