    I was only ten years old, unaware of who John Lennon was and what he meant to the generation born before me. Now, I can only think about what might have been if not for Mark David Chapman, who asked for, and received, an autograph from John earlier on the day of December 8, 1980.

    Cosell later had to lay down because he drank too much in the 4th quarter

    I remember where I was. That hit me hard that night. Sobered me up for a minute. I was / am a huge Beatles fan. There was always talk and hope that the Beatles would reunite throughout the 70's. The dream and a bit of my wasted youth died that night.

    I went out to get the paper from my driveway. When I read the headline, I was really sad. Never met the man but his music touched my soul.

    It's strange (in a sad way) to think about him being gone for 35 years. When he was 35, his second son was born and he pretty much left the limelight to focus on being a dad. Crazy to think in a few years he'll have been dead longer than he was alive.

    I was too young to care. I believe history has shown him to be a prententious hypocritical asshole. FHRITP.

    Not sure. He was becoming a supporter of Reagan from what I have read.

    and still that POS that killed him is still alive & well, sheltered and fed all on the taxpayers dollars. How has no one gotten to this asshole in prison and put a shiv in him? Don't they know that whoever offs him would be a hero to the world?

    I was 11 at the time and I remember being in bed and my mom yelling from the living room that he had been shot. Even at that age the Beatles had been a huge part of my life. I know he was a flawed human being as we all are but his music has brought me a lot of joy over the years.
