John Lennon was killed twenty-eight years ago tonight. Howard Cosell announced his death on Monday Night Football. You can watch the announcement, which is quite surreal, on You Tube.
Here is Nightline's report from that night.
It is a rather creepy story. Chapman desried to live out some Catcher in the Rye fantasy: "He [Lennon] knew where the ducks went in the winter." Hours before Chapman killed Lennon, he appeared in a photo with him that was taken outside of The Dakotas.
After the shooting, Chapman sat down on the sidewalk, read Catcher in the Rye, and waited for the police.
This brings us to Monday's Musical Tribute: There is no tribute...
