It was 30 years ago today that John Lennon was shot and killed outside of his home.

December 8th is starting to get pretty sad.  30 years ago it was John Lennon that was shot dead and 6 years ago it was "Dimebag" Darrell of Pantera that was shot dead on stage.  Just recently John Lennon's last taped interview surfaced.  Taken just 3 days before his death.

Rolling Stone magazine is publishing an interview with John Lennon, conducted three days before the former Beatle was gunned down in New York, in full for the first time.

The magazine said the nine-hour discussion with Jonathan Cott was the singer/songwriter's final print interview. Lennon was murdered outside his apartment on December 8, 1980, aged 40.
