In was late on the night of December 8, 1980, when tragedy would strike and alter the course of music history forever.

John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono had just arrived at their New York condominium when an unstable Mark David Chapman would shoot John Lennon, a person that John Lennon signed an autograph for earlier that evening.

Shortly after, Lennon was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital, however it was all too late. John Lennon was declared dead just as soon as he arrived.

John Lennon was actually one of the world’s greatest people, not only as a musician, but as a person overall. He was actually one of the crucial beautiful and peaceful souls to ever walk the world and is responsible for a number of music’s most timeless and cherished songs.

People all over the world remember this moment as one of the crucial saddening times in modern history (at the time). It won’t solely be eternally known as a day in unhappiness, but also a day when family, mates, and followers alike had been united to mourn the icon.

And even to this present day, he’s sorely missed. RIP John Winston Lennon. He was 40 years of age.
