It was 20 years ago today...
The music industry was ROCKED today by the shock death of John Lennon, brought down by an assassin's bullet after signing an autograph.
There is no suggestion this is a publicity stunt to promote "The Beatles" new album, currently riding high at the top of the hit parade.
Mr Lennon is survived by a wife and two sons.
The content here originally from my popular (in the tail end of the nineties) website popex.com. Some of this written by other people, but mainly originally created by me. I moved the content here here when the website eventually shut down at the start of the 2000s. Hopefully this ignites memories assuming you find it.
