John Lennon: 31 years ago today

On this day 31 years ago, John Lennon was murdered outside of his apartment in New York.  He was shot in the back four times by a man named Mark David Chapman (oddly enough, he happened to get John Lennon‘s autograph earlier in the evening).  Mark David Chapman was sentenced 20 years to life and, to this day, still remains in prison

John Lennon is, without question, one of the biggest names is music history.  He wasn’t a metal musician but he and the rest of The Beatles influenced countless and countless of artists from many different musical genres.

He was a great songwriter that composed many classics over the years.  R.I.P.
