John Lennon-in 20 minutes, 31 years ago.

On 12/08/1980, one of the greatest singers/songwriters of the 20th century was gunned down in front of his apartment building. I barely remember it as I was 5, but I do remember.

Many of you in here were probably not too fond of him, as he was suspected of being pro-Communism. I think that he fought social injustice the only way that he knew how.

I just remember one of the last songs that he recorded before his death. It was/is one of the most moving songs of the 20th, imho. Enjoy! If you have not seen this video and you were a John Lennon fan, get tissue before you watch.

I well remember where I was when I heard the news...

just like I remember where I was when I heard JFK had been shot...

both events were devastating...

here's a tune than will always remind me of that day...

So where do you think my screen name comes from?

Actually I'm not a huge fan of his solo work. Its ok to me but not great.

Apparently, they weren't compatible. It's unfortunate, but it happened.

I thought it was pretty cool the way John hooked up with Yoko, who apparently became his muse...

I just wish he hadn't put a microphone in front of her during the recording sessions...
