John Lennon: classic figure in the history of music everywhere. He was a hero and a legend to many people, even while he was alive. People looked up to him. He received a level of respect from many people that will never be matched. Then, one December day in New York City, he died.
The city - maybe even the whole world - was shocked into silence. People everywhere were wondering the same thing: why would someone kill John Lennon, the very same man who fought for world peace? That sure didn't seem like a peaceful thing to do.
That someone was Mark David Chapman. He shaped the world forever. However, he started out his life loving the Beatles. John Lennon was his role model. The Beatles' records were on constant repeat on his record player. Then, one day, he realized that he would never be as great as John Lennon. He would never impact the world like John Lennon did. Unless, of course, he killed the man.
Years passed and Mark David Chapman always had the thought of murdering John Lennon in the back of his mind. He thought that his favorite book, The Catcher in the Rye, was telling him to go through with his plan. So he did.
That man alone changed the entire world on December 8th. And that's exactly what he wanted. He wanted to be remembered for doing something drastic in his life. He wanted people to feel something because of HIM, a sad, lonely man that would never amount to be half the man that John Lennon was.
December 8, 1980: The Day John Lennon Died follows the lives of many different people on that fateful day. It follows everything that John Lennon, Yoko Ono, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Mark David Chapman, even The Beatles' former manager, and many others on their journey through the day that changed the world forever.
