Today Would be John Lennon's 80th Birthday


It is hard to believe that John Lennon would have been 80 years old had he lived.  Sadly he was murdered by a crazed fan at age 40.  In December it will be 40 years since he died.  He certainly left us some excellent music as a solo artist and as part of the legendary Beatles.  We'll never know what music he would have done had he lived.  Would all 4 Beatles have united?

There were several tribute songs written about him:

  • Here Today - Paul McCartney
  • All Those Years Ago - George Harrison
  • Empty Garden - Elton John
  • Roll on John - Bob Dylan
My favorite of the 4 is Empty Garden
