Celebrating John Lennon’s birthday!

 John Lennon was born October 9, 1940.  The founder of The Beatles would’ve been 75 years old today.  He and his bandmates, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, shook the world with Beatlemania.

Individually the four continued to influence the culture but together they were a powerhouse.

“In My Life” is one of the many songs penned by John Lennon.  Enjoy the video of the “four lads from Liverpool.”
