One of the great what-ifs of rock and roll surrounds what might have happened if John Lennon hadn't been murdered in 1980.

We got just a tiny glimpse of what that might have looked like at a recent Paul McCartney live show.
McCartney was playing at Spokane Arena in Spokane, Washington, USA on April 28, when he kicked into The Beatles 'I Got A Feeling' from their final Let It Be album.
Around two minutes into the song, the big screens were filled with the face of John Lennon, with footage and audio from the Beatles' farewell rooftop performance being perfectly mixed with the live show for the ultimate virtual duet.
'I Got A Feeling' features heavily in Peter Jackson's stunning three-part Get Back documentary on Disney+, which offers a new look at the controversial recording of the Let It Be album.
The song was part of a career-spanning 36-track setlist, which featured 1958's 'In Spite of All The Danger', a rare Paul McCartney and George Harrison co-write first recorded by the pre-Beatles band The Quarrymen.
The comeback gig was the first proper show of McCartney's Got Back tour, which marks his return to performance after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The full setlist was as follows:
- Can't Buy Me Love
- Junior's Farm
- Letting Go
- Got to Get You Into My Life
- Come On to Me

McCartney will bring his live show to the UK this summer, when he headlines the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in June, 20 years after his triumphant 2002 set there.
He was originally booked to play the 50th anniversary festival two years ago, before the festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus.
