Today is the great John Lennon’s birthday. Yes he would’ve turned 70 today. Considering that not everyone ages past 70 these days, he may have passed on by now, who really knows? So if he stuck around for a little longer, would his songs have still resonated today? I’m thinking yes. So we probably missed out on another 50 or at least a dozen or so great songs. I guess we will never know.
Unfortunately for his loved ones John Lennon’s life was cut short on that fateful night, December 8th 1980 when he was shot dead by a mentally unstable Mark D Chapman. Fortunately for us he left quite a musical legacy. Yes he was one-fourth of THE BEATLES (no need to explain their role in music), but away from the Fab Four was where he penned some of the most memorable and important songs in music history to date.
Happy Birthday John Lennon xox
