Celebrating the Life of John Lennon

John Lennon (1940-1980)

It was on this day, 29 years ago, that John Winston Lennon was taken from us. His death left a hole in the heart of music, one which will never be healed . John’s impact on music can not be expressed in words. Most people are familiar with the history of John’s life, and so, rather than write a biographical sketch (which can be found here), we figured it would be better to show you John’s greatness through a series of videos that pay tribute to his music.
