There is always something about these people who have led extraordinary lives and that is the reason why their lives and their deaths also fascinate us in a way. Because come on, there are some people who have never left their small towns but then these people are those who have built empires. Now John Lennon last words are the most haunting one on the list. “Yes I am,” in response to being asked by his assassin/murderer to confirm his identity. He was a man who was magic because that is how he transformed the music world.
