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.

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.
