He even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "What's up, Doc?"

1980 - At the age of 72 years old, Matthew was alive when on December 8th, ex-Beatle John Lennon was shot and killed by Mark David Chapman in front of his home - the Dakota - in New York City. Chapman was found guilty of murder and still remains in jail.
