John Lennon (1940-1980) on the cover of Time (December 22, 1980), exactly two weeks after he was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on Disyembre 8. It was labeled “when the music died,” which is somewhat a repetition of what happened on February 3, 1959, when rock singer Buddy Holly died in a plane crash, then labeled as “the day the music died” in Don McLean’s song “American Pie” (1971).
