Del Shannon morreu há trinta anos...

Del Shannon (Grand Rapids, Michigan, 30 de dezembro de 1934 - Santa Clarita, Califórnia, 8 de fevereiro de 1990) foi um famoso cantor e compositor norte-americano. O seu nome completo de batismo era Charles Weedon Westover.
Death and legacy
Suffering from depression, Shannon committed suicide on February 8, 1990, with a .22-caliber rifle at his home in Santa Clarita, California, while on a prescription dose of the anti-depressant drug Prozac. Shannon was cremated, and his ashes were scattered. Following his death, The Traveling Wilburys honored him by recording a version of "Runaway". Lynne also co-produced Shannon's posthumous album, Rock On, released on Silvertone in 1991.
Shannon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999.
Artists continue to cover Shannon's songs, for example "To Love Someone" by Pat Robinson and Carla Olson on the True Voices (1990) album, and "Keep Searchin'" by Peter Case and Carla Olson on her album Have Harmony, Will Travel (2013), and Bayside on the Covers Volume#1 (2013).
