John Lennon

On December 08, 1980, John Lennon was shot four times in the back by Mark Chapman outside New York's chic Dakota apartment block in Central Park West where he lived with his second wife, Yoko Ono. Chapman who had asked the former Beatle for his autograph only hours before he laid in wait and killed him, had claimed that he had heard voices in his head telling him to kill John Lennon. Even in death, his music lives on. I have uploaded 'Imagine’ which became Lennon’s signature song and it was written as a plea for world peace. Certainly, one of the greatest songs of all time:



And my favorite selection of his other songs too:



Did you know that Lady Gaga has a tattoo of a peace symbol on her left wrist, inspired by her hero John Lennon?
