October 9 - Happy 70th Birthday John Lennon!

On this day 70 years ago, one of music's all time greatest talents was born. John Lennon, one of the founding members of The Beatles, was one of the most beloved celebrities on the planet before his death in 1980. As a performer, writer, and co-writer, Lennon is responsible for 27 number #1 singles in the United States! A BBC poll ranked him number 8 on the top "100 Greatest Britons" list, and Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as the 5th greatest singer of all time.

Some of Lennon's most famous solo recordings include "Imagine", "Instant Karma", and "Whatever gets you through the night".

Today, Lennon has monuments, parks, statues, pubs, hotels, cafes, schools, and an airport all named after him.
