We are ringing in John Lennon’s 71st birthday with a no-holds bar celebration of his life and his music. From the skiffle days of Liverpool to the senseless murder at the Dakota Building, Lennon’s impact on the pop culture world is unmatched.  He left us so many groundbreaking tunes, both with the Fab Four and as a solo artist, that whittling them down to the definitive Best of the Best for a Sing-Along was no easy feat. But we did it.  We poured thru concerts, films, and amazing archival footage to tell the whole story of the mischievous and intellectual Beatle from start to end.  Warning: this show packs a emotional punch.

Note by Ahhh Girl 12 October 2011: This post originally began a different thread. Posts 9 and 10 were a part of that thread.

I'm just going to post all these new John 71st birthday articles, photo's and video's in this one John Lennon News thread.

As Joe has suggested, which is a good idea.So I don't start alot of threads for each article etc.

The Imagine Peace Tower, an artwork by Yoko Ono on Videy island off Reykjavík, was lit for the fifth time yesterday, on the birthday of her late husband, John Lennon. It is dedicated to their struggle for world peace.Ono and her and Lennon’s son Sean will play at the Iceland Airwaves festival which kicks off on Wednesday with the Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, Morgunbladid reports.“We have come to Iceland every year since the Imagine Peace Tower project was launched and I had started to think it was strange to always come and then leave just before Airwaves began,” Sean Lennon said.

John Lennon's Birthday: A Look at the Lennon Legacy [PHOTOS & VIDEOS]

John Lennon would have turned 71 on his birthday today, Oct. 9. Best known as one of the founders of the Beatles, he is recognized as one of the greatest musicians and songwriters of the 20th century.Beyond his music, however, Lennon has even eclipsed Paul McCartney, the most famous surviving Beatle, as an icon. A BBC poll in 2002 ranked Lennon number eight in a poll of the 100 Greatest Britons; McCartney and George Harrison were not even in the top twenty, and Ringo Starr was not on the list.

For His Birthday, A Celebration of John Lennon the Visual Artist. Was He Any Good ?

Why does John Lennon still hold such fascination, 31 years after he died and 71 years after he was born (Oct. 9)? A birthday exhibit titled “Gimme Some Truth,” in a gallery in New York’s SoHo, showcased his artwork and gave a glimpse into that special mentality that led to the founding of the world’s most successful band and the opening of so many social and cultural doors.

Beatles' John Lennon at 71 ? Girlfriend May Pang imagines

Imagine John Lennon celebrating his 71st birthday today. Recently San Antonio Examiner Jack Dennis and music enthusiast Liz Hajek traveled to New York to spend a day with May Pang, Lennon’s girlfriend for almost two years in the early 1970s.After enjoying 12 hours with May in her home, and at a nearby seafood restaurant near Pomona, NY, the two Texans understood why John Lennon was attracted to such a beautiful and insightful lady.

The Reykjavik Grape Airwaves Fancy
October 14, 2011
A Traditonal in Our Family

I did not know what to expect from tonight’s lineup. Essentially it was Plastic Ono Band and various sub-voltrons thereof. I was afraid the gig would be hermetic and insular. People playing for their friends. This could not have been further from the truth. This was an incredibly welcoming show. It was like the audience were in the Plastic Ono Band’s living room, and the members of the household were taking turns playing songs.

Troubled Fantasy: Creepy Wax Figures Of John Lennon

It's a big week for Beatles fans, which is like saying it's a big week for people who like air and water. Yesterday was John Lennon's 71st birthday, and tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of "Imagine." The Martin Scorsese-directed doc on George Harrison's life, the beyond stellar George Harrison: Living in the Material World, premiered last week on HBO. Not to be outdone, Paul McCartney married for the third time, tying the knot with his girlfriend Nancy Shevell. Lennon's legacy is obviously massive and influential, and his message lives on now, almost 31 years since his murder in 1980. But aside from all that, aside from the rightful adoration and worship – though Harrison became our favorite Beatle this week – is the inherent creepiness of most every wax figure made of Lennon.

Happy Birthday John! Sorry you couldn't make it to 2013 - you'd find much to enjoy, probably much more to complain about, and we'd all have loved to hear what you had to say (and sing) about it all.

I'll have a drink tonight in your honour! Or maybe two. :)
