Potentially Huge topic but didn't know where to post it, so it went here.
I'm asking myself this question :
What do you think of musicologist Ted Gioia's theory about stardom in popular music fading exactly 80 years after of the artistic rise of a musical artist (e.g. Bob Hope)?
That time around, the fans of that artist would be dead (for the most part) and his music become more obscure and his name unknown to younger generations.
The article I'm reffering to:

It is suggested in the comments than even the GOAT of composers J.-S. Bach had a drop in popularity even if his music was brought to music sheets and was rediscovered long after his death by fellow classical composers centuries later.
