In His Life
John Lennon is my favorite musician, artist, and activist. Today would have been his 70th birthday. A few of the photos I scanned for this post were from a book (John Lennon: The New York Years) I recieved from my Mom on my 16th birthday on October 11, 2005. Part of the dedication reads:
"...Enjoy this book, I know you love him. Love, Mom"
(No truer words have ever been written, I even had a Mod London Sweet 16 Party that year with enormous blowups of The Beatles and a lifesize cardboard cutout English phone booth.)
(images all scans by me from: John Lennon: the New York Years, Beatles 365 Days, Life: Remembering John Lennon 25 years later, John Lennon Scrapbook. Photography: Bob Gruen, Henry Benson)
