Amongst the Tiger Woods gossip stories, let us not forget that today marks the 29th anniversary of John Legends death. On December 8th, 1980, Lennon was shot five times outside his apartment building and killed by his stalker Mark David Chapman. The death of the rock legend marks one of the most important days in music history.
There's no doubt that music would be in a different state and that many famous acts would never exist today had John Lennon never became a musician and formed The Beatles. But what would music be like had John Lennon survived the shooting and continued making music? Would he have continued to be as influential as he was in The Beatles? Would rock music dominate today rather than Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga taking the top spots?
How do you picture the music world, had John Lennon lived?
Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.
