"The Day John Lennon Died" is a look at Lennon and his death through archival footage and interviews.

Someone once said to me when politicians are assassinated it's one thing, but "when they start killing the artists," it's a bad sign.

John Lennon's loss was certainly devastating, and I'm not sure it could have been avoided. Perhaps it might have been delayed, though. He was a man who loved New York, loved walking down the street. He didn't have bodyguards, and he signed autographs outside of the Dakota. Part of the problem is that the security people at the Dakota apparently let people "hang out" there -- a mistake -- and another is that Lennon didn't always enter or leave the Dakota by driving directly in or out of the garage.

So as the completely obsessed Mark David Chapman stood across the street and watched the apartment building, no one noticed and no one told him to leave. He eventually moved closer. And shot John Lennon.

A cautionary tale in one way, a heartbreaking tale in another.
