John Lennon - Last Interview, December 8, 1980

John Lennon was killed during the evening hours of December 8, 1980.  Earlier in the day, he had given an interview about his current life and his hopes for the future.  This clip features an excerpt from that interview, conducted by Dave Sholin (assisted by Laurie Kaye) on behalf of RKO Radio.

Hours after John spoke these words, he was dead (at the age of 40). 

Lennon had also agreed to an extended interview with Jonathan Cott - from Rolling Stone magazine - three days before he was shot.  That interview (in its entirety) was released (for the first time) to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Lennon's death.
