John Lennon was assassinated on December 8, 1980. It was a sad day for music history, and for music all around the world. When politicians are assassinated, it is one thing, but when they start killing the artists, it is a bad sign.

The day John Lennon died is one of the saddest in the history of music. The documentary takes a look at his death through footage and interviews. The loss of Lennon was devastating, and it probably could not be avoided.

Lennon was a man who loved New York and loved to walk down the street without any bodyguards. He was loved, but he also had enemies. One of them was Mark David Chapman, a completely obsessed man with Lennon.

The security at Dakota let people hang out there, as Lennon was signing autographs outside of the building. And that is one of the reasons how Chapman was able to get close to Lennon shot him. Today, we are honoring one of the greatest musicians of all time by remembering the sad day he died.
