"You can always bend down in the street and pick up nothing."
It’s 40 years since the murder of John Lennon, a moment trapped in Mickey Sharpe’s mind as he imagines that fateful night. After struggling to live on minimum wage, Mickey decides, "you’re better off being a gangster because you’ve got more of a chance."
John Lennon has now been dead as long as he lived.
Today, we have the ability to trap any moment in time using the technology we hold in our pockets, however, we can only imagine the night of the 8th of December 1980 outside the Dakota Apartments in New York, when John Lennon was shot four times in the back.
