His last record is good. Certainly not great . Probably on par with George’s ELO thing later in the decade. I firmly believe the mops would have reunited in the 80’s if Lennon hadn’t been killed. He and Macca were on decent terms when he died. I was weeks away from my 17th birthday on 12/8/80. I was a punk but I didn’t know it at the time. To be honest , Joe Strummer’s death hit me harder 22 yrs later but Lennon’s was still tragic.
