Happy Birthday John Lennon

 John Lennon

October 9, 1940- December 8, 1980

John Lennon


John Winston Lennon was born in Liverpool on this day in 1940. He would have been 68 today had he not been tragically murdered outside his hotel in Manhattan. 

From the day he picked up his first guitar, the music world was never the same. As a founding member of the Beatles, John Lennon took music to new levels and led the way for a social and cultural revolution. Whether you agreed with his methodology or not, Lennon’s intentions evoked a simple philosophy:

Give Peace A Chance

From the Beatles debut album, 1963's Please Please Me, to Abbey Road six years later, every record represented a considerable artistic progression. But all of them were themed around peace, love and good will towards your fellow man. This was a message that John Lennon constantly spread in his music, his art, his interviews, and, sadly posthumously.

Imagine all the people living life in peace…
