Hall of Fame Essay

1994

Dave Marsh

Imagine no John Lennon. A dozen years after his assassination, it remains no easier to even try. 

That’s so not only because John should be with us tonight, feisty and fiftyish, but because in many ways, he, his  music and his ideas remain with us, day in and day out, as powerfully as any figure in the history of rock & roll.  

Lennon still speaks to us so often and so directly because he was rock’s first true polymath.
