On the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death, Rolling Stone is releasing what is believed to be his last print interview.

Lennon talked to Rolling Stone on December 5, 1980, just three days before being gunned down in front of his New York City apartment building by Mark David Chapman.

In the interview, Lennon slammed his critics, saying they want "dead heroes" and said he's not interesting in being anyone's dead hero.

He also talked about trying to be a good father to young Sean Lennon and mused about the future, saying there was "plenty of time" to explore some of his life's plans.
