John Lennon


Queen’s University adjunct music professor Robb MacKay is available to talk about the legacy of John Lennon. Wednesday, Dec. 8 is the 30th anniversary of the death of the Beatles star.

“John Lennon's musical legacy is astonishing and unquestioned: there is very little that happens now in the world of popular music to which one can't respond, ‘Yep! The Beatles did that.’ However, Lennon's personal life is also well-worthy of note: a tale of inspiration and caution, bravery and self-destruction, and love,” says Mr. MacKay.

Mr. MacKay teaches a course on popular music at Queen’s and discusses the influence of the Beatles. Mr. MacKay is only available for phone interviews after 2:30 p.m.

To arrange an interview, please contact Michael Onesi at 613.533.6000 ext. 77513 or michael.onesi@queensu.ca, or Kristyn Wallace at 613.533.6000 ext. 79173 or kristyn.wallace@queensu.ca at News and Media Services, Queen’s University.

Attention broadcasters: Queen’s has facilities to provide broadcast quality audio and video feeds. For television interviews, we can provide a live, real-time double ender from Kingston via fibre optic cable. Please call for details.
