John Williams to announce shock retirement from music?

Williams created a stir on Wednesday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Sad news for Williams fans. Speculation had been rife that the American composer best known for the soundtracks to Indiana Jones or Star Wars, will announce his retirement from music, at age 89, with immediate effect.

Being a composer isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a composer-conductor-pianist just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Wednesday evening, #ThankYouJohn was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouJohn.”
