Why Don't They Ever Predict Something "Big"?

In an interview on August 23rd, 1980, conducted by Lee Speigel, host of the NBC radio show, Unexplained Phenomena, psychic Alex Tanous made an eerie prediction. The interview was being taped for later broadcast and was held at the American Society for Psychical Research in New York City, right across from the Dakota Apartments. Speigel asked him if he could predict something that would be of interest to music fans across the world and this is the prediction Tanous made:
The prediction that I will make is that a very famous rock star will have an untimely death, and this can happen from this moment on. I say untimely death because there is something strange about his death, [that will affect the] consciousness of many people because of his fame.
The taped interview was actually broadcast the night of September 5th, 1980.

John Lennon was shot to death outside his apartment on December 8th, 1980. He lived at the Dakota, across the street from where the interview had been taped the month before.

Since Tanous had not named a specific person, Speigel had drawn up a list of five possibilities. John Lennon topped his list.
