My gut still viscerally feels a pain from those bullets that tore him away from life and from us, and still at times a black and bleak nausea at the grievous loss wells up; then his love and wit and genius manage to reach through that horrific crime, to rise above it, to console and comfort my heart and mind, if I let it…

Happy Birthday, John. I'm just now getting to know you. Have no fears for the Beatles Bible folks will lead me down the right path to understanding you and the legacy you left behind.

Saw this- the bit with George and the plastic flower is too cute for words.

P.S. How eerie is the track "Life Begins at 40" from the Lennon Anthology ???

It's not quite here yet, but if we're going to go early…

And don't forget, Happy Birthday Sean!

Oh man, I LOVE Janis Joplin! I'd totally be playing her music right now if I wasn't committed to the whole John Lennon thing at the moment!!

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Oh man, I LOVE Janis Joplin! I'd totally be playing her music right now if I wasn't committed to the whole John Lennon thing at the moment!!

It is a great little (little known) recording! Also got me to wondering though. I wonder if there's a whole bunch of birthday recordings for his 30th that we don't know about. We know George did It's Johnny's Birthday that year, and for the same birthday Janis did her little bit, which is announced as a birthday present on the tape. I wonder if Yoko put out a suggestion to friends and people he admired that they do something for his big 3-0…

Thanks for posting "Bless You," MMM. It's my favorite solo John song.

It's so hard to believe he's not with us when I look at photos and video of him bursting at the seams with life. Happy birthday, John. heart

And happy birthday to Sean. Also a happy anniversary to Paul, because you know that date was chosen as a nod to his dear friend.

Thanks for posting that Joplin recording, mja. I'd forgotten that existed – I hadn't heard it for so long.

So, John, you would've been 73 today. You should be turning 73 today. And it makes me so upset to think that that chance was taken away from you. Nobody should have this happen to them, and you certainly didn't deserve it. You were a beautiful man, aggravating at times, but still beautiful. It would have been nice to share the planet with you.

I'll be listening to your music today, and thinking of you, as I do most days.

Happy Birthday heart

Couldn't have said it better myself.heart It's so sad. Happy Birthday John, hope you have a great one up there.

Also a happy birthday to Sean. I can imagine birthdays haven't always been easy for him.

I'm only listening to John's music today :) Watching his music videos tonight and toasting him with soya milk (oh Katie you wild thing) in my Imagine mug and will probably do a bit of my history project on him as well

Yes, John and the puppy want you work on it.

Did you ever get any books via that Interlibrary loan program?

Ooooo, cool.

John, can you please forgive us for going on and on about your intimate, personal leanings? Or are you having a good laugh at us?

 I've actually got about 7 books to read at the moment and what with all my school work, I won't be going them read until Christmas at the earliest :/ Once summer comes I might get some books in for Germany/France/Austria :)

Happy Birthday, John Lennon!

Imagine you're still living

I hope that you can try

When I think that you're not with us

It makes me want to cry

Imagine all the people

Who love you oh so much

You-ooo

You may think that we're all dreamers

But it's all because of you

We thank you for the music

And for the memories too.

Listening to the John Lennon Anthology box set (cover is the same as 'You Are Here' posted by MMM on page 1). A lot of studio banter. Nice to hear John talking…

Most definitely!  To honour them both today, I drew a heart beside each of them on my Beatles tattoo.  heart
