We have a copy here of another article by Marc Schneider here, where he posted some videos of reporting footage of John Lennon’s murder, one of the most famous celebrity deaths of all time.

For all of our younger readers, John Lennon was a leading member of The Beatles, possibly the most famous, the most successful, and most beloved bands of all time.  His death at the time was shocking news that made massive headlines around the globe.

Check out some of the videos on youtube if you can, Im not sure if they are copyrighted and if we can show them here,  and you can relive the moment, a moment by the way that many people who lived through it said they will always remember where they were when they heard the news.  And for you younger viewers, you can get a sense of history and of the times back in the early eighties.
