8 DEC. 1980. John Lennon

Imagine It’s Been 30 Years Since John Lennon Left the Scene

John Lennon would have been 70 years old had he not been gunned down 30 years ago on December 8, 1980. Both Time and Newsweek gave over their covers to Lennon’s passing. I’ve chosen Newsweek to focus on because it has that haunting portrait by Richard Avedon. Also, I had previewed the first Newsweek cover to feature the Beatles back in 1964 in an earlier post, and it’s interesting to compare how the coverage changed in those intervening years.
