Today in 1981

Todays date is an infamous day in rock music history. Look what happened on todays date in 1981:

Mark David Chapman is sentenced to 20 years in prison for the shooting of John Lennon. His only response is to read a passage from a J.D. Salinger novel. Chapman currently works as a janitor in Attica State Prison.

And yesterday this occured....

Jul 20 1973

In Hong Kong, martial artist Bruce Lee drops into a coma and dies of cerebral edema. He had been experiencing brain problems beginning in May, which included sporadic loss of consciousness. Lee's death transpires shortly before the release of Enter the Dragon, his most successful film.

Little did we know that both of these legends would be the focus of tons of t-shirts in our society today.

Look for new John Lennon T-Shirts in the next week. In other new t-shirt news we have more Doe / Mighty Fine t-shirts on the way. Some of them include McDonalds, Hello Kitty and more.
