i was 10 years old when it happened, so I don't remember anything about it.

Chapman shot him at night, so I guess I was tucked away and asleep in my widdle iddle beddy bye. :)

I find that hard to believe. I would think that you'd remember something like that at ten. I was only seven when Diana of Wales died, and even though I didn't know who she was at the time, I remember it very clearly.

Plus what about the weeks after his death! My God, it was like the president had been shot! How you can't remember that is beyond me.

I got up that morning.........it was on a Tuesday, I remember that.  I had a birthday coming up on the 11th, so I was "almost 16"............mom and dad always listened to this country/news station on the radio...........and they came on saying, "former Beatles John Lennon has died, shot dead last night at his Dakota complex"..........and said more about it and I just cried and cried and CRIED that whole day at school.  Oh my god......someone had shot a "Beatle" and killed a "Beatle"........I was in shock for a long, long, time......

I did the whole bit of wearing, "Remember John" and all those T-shirts that people came out with just to remember, and "remind" what the music world had lost..........I was a "trouper", I was.......................and a fanatic............even got my mom to buying "anything" she saw of John Lennon at the stores when she went for her weekly shopping.

My husband "to be", heard it on Monday Night Football when Howard Cosell made a statement that John Lennon was shot at his Dakota apartment..........but nothing more was said.........so yes, this is all "American Time".....

Yes but, it's: where were you when you heard. Like the Kennedy thing or now 9/11. The moment you heard it is what sticks with you. And we all eventually heard it.

BTW, I was asleep too. It was pretty late in NY too. Especially for a kid on a school night.

I was not alive when he was killed... I am only sixteen. But, I do remember when I heard that he was not alive for the first time. I have been a lover of the beatles since the age of five... and death is a pretty heavy subject at that age, but my dad decided he would tell me at age six. I was in the truck with my dad listening to revolution.. when he told me that the beatles weren't a band that is still together and that john was shot in 1980. And ever since then I have become more and more fasinated with the history of the band and all of the members.. especially john. He has been my favorite from the gecko.

I remember that day well. I was eleven and I'd just gotten up and came down the stairs. My dad was sitting there in shock and my older brother had his hand on my dad's shoulder. I asked what was up, and my brother replied 'John Lennon's been shot and killed in New York.'

I was only eleven but I was floored. He and the other guys had been a big part of my childhood and I walked to school in shock. In lessons I couldn't concentrate and when my classmates asked me what was wrong and I told them, they were of the opinion 'he's just a singer'.

I'm just one of millions of people who loved and respected him.

I was not around in 1980 (I was born just a few years later).  When I first got into the Beatles I don't think I was aware that John had died.  I think I found out about it while looking up the Beatles in an encyclopedia, and it mentioned that John had been murdered.  I felt shocked and sad and thought to myself...  Who would do this?  And why? :'( :'( :'(
