December 8, 1980, a day that will live in infamy for John Lennon fans. As part of a CNN Documentary “Losing Lennon,” we’re talking to people who had a personal connection to the tragic events of that day when Lennon was gunned down by Mark David Chapman.
AM’s John Roberts talks to radio writer Laurie Kaye, who was part of a team that did the last interview with Lennon on the day he died. When she heard about the shooting, she ran over to Roosevelt Hospital, where Lennon was taken, and witnessed Yoko Ono’s reaction. Also, O.A.R. frontman Marc Roberge talks about how Lennon’s death inspired the alternative rock band’s recent song “Dakota.”
Watch the preview here, and be sure to catch the full documentary,” Losing Lennon: Countdown to Murder,” premiering Saturday and Sunday night at 8 ET on CNN.
