The death of John Lennon has touched people of all ages. Lennon died when Rock and Roll was trying to pry itself from the morass of Disco. The mix of disco, rock and pop spat out New Wave and Lennon and his beloved wife Yoko Ono saw it as an opportunity to create new music. Lennon was excited to hear bands like Cheap Trick and The B52’s create sounds that reminded him of his glory days. He died during a comeback, shot down in front of his apartment in New York.
