35 years have passed since the murder of John Lennon. This and all the gender-based violence cases we hear everyday on the news have reminded me of this beautiful song by John Lennon.
John Lennon was an English musician who became very famous as one of the members of the Beatles. He died on 8th December, 1980, when David Chapman shot him five times in the archway of the building where he lived, the Dakota building, in New York City. That morning was very frantic for both John and her wife, Yoko Ono. It's because that morning they had attended journalists, they had been to the barber's and Anne Leibovitz did a photo shoot for him. John and Ono were strolling to The Hit Factory. In the Dakota's archway, Chapman first saw Lennon and he showed him a copy of 'Double Fantasy' on which he wrote: John Lennon, 1980. At 22.45h, Lennon and his wife arrived at the Dakota building by limousine.Chapman was waiting. Suddenly, he shot Lennon, killing him.
This ex-Beatle was reported dead at The Roosevelt hospital. He was forty years old. Ono didn't want to organize him a funeral.
I don't like John Lennon's songs very much, but the song I like the most is IMAGINE by John Lennon, obviously.
