I'm celebrating this occasion with my older brother, cousin Bill, and some friends, listening to Abbey Road , we're currently on Mean Mr. Mustard and when we're done, we're going to play a Beatles setlist.

Was there really not enough room to put his full face, he looks like Wilson from Home Improvement.

It's still such a shame you didn't live to see it.

It's strange to think that Sean is now older than his father was when he died.

I'm making a new series of videos on YouTube called 15 Minute PlayLists where I play 15 minutes of an artist using nothing but a guitar and I did my first episode using 5 John Lennon songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?.....fM7w_rSxoY

I'm sorry if the tempo is off, as I wasn't playing with a metronome or anything and also, I decided to do some improv on Come Together and Cold Turkey

Not trying to discourage anyone, but I never understood the practice of wishing happy birthday to dead people.

I can understand commemorating their death.

It's pointless, just like nearly everything else in human experience.

I saw this picture of John recently, and it made me happy. Let's all think happy thoughts of Lennon on his birthday.

Lennon magic: For my economics exam this evening, it starts at 18:15 GMT (pray for Mojo) and ends at 19:30. I'm seated in Row Seat 3 and we all know that 3 squared is.....9!

 

ASJ is going to get 9% confirmed! 

 

And for Ex Tex, I think 'happy birthday' to all of my relatives who've died, it's nice to be remembered. Of course he was a Beatle so I don't think John is going to be forgotten anytime soon and will most likely live longer in human memory than any of us BUT it's still nice to do.

 

Also, happy birthday Sean! (One day you shall spell your name correctly, Seán a-hard-days-night-george-10)
