OCTOBER 9, 1940

"You may say that I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as one."

John Winston Ono Lennon, (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980)
was an English singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as
one of the founding members of The Beatles and, with Paul McCartney,
formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships of the
20th century.

Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon became involved in the
skiffle craze as a teenager, his first band, The Quarrymen,
evolving into The Beatles in 1960. As the group began to
undergo the disintegration that led to their break-up towards
the end of that decade, Lennon launched a solo career that would span the next, punctuated by critically acclaimed albums, including
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and iconic songs
such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine".

John Lennon would have been 70 tomorrow.

Born on October 9th 1940, his birthday is being
celebrated the world over, with some of the largest tributes
taking place in Liverpool, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle.
