Re: When Exactly Did Disco Die and When Was the Beginning of the End?
This is in part political but I've mentioned in similar threads in the past that it occured around '81 in the states. This was around the time Reagan came into office. There was a push to get rid of the what disco represented. Multiculturalism, free love, drugs, free expression of sexuality, etc. Reagan and his election represented the opposite of all that. He represented a conservative return to '50s sensabilities.
The underlying hatred for all things disco was always there. In one of my favorite movies "Airplane", there was a scene where the airplane knocks down the transmission tower of a disco station.
Find them and destroy them!
