On December 8, 1980, rock star John Lennon was shot to death outside the Dakota, his New York City apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The death of Lennon 40 years ago, still reverberates as a defining moment for a generation and for the music world.
John Lennon was only 40-years-old.
Rest in peace, John.
A sad sad day but remembering my friend John with the great joy he brought to the world. I will always be proud and happy to have known and worked with this incredible Scouser! X love Paul#JohnLennon
