(CNN) Paul McCartney attended the March for Our Lives in New York on Saturday, telling CNN the cause was important to him because he lost John Lennon to gun violence.

John Lennon, one of McCartney’s fellow Beatles, was killed in New York 37 years ago.
As Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, were walking in Manhattan one December night, a man fired five rounds into Lennon’s back, killing him.
