Happy Birthday, John

Remembering John Lennon on what would have been – and should have been – his 79th birthday.

The photograph at the bottom was taken by Rolling Stone magazine photographer Annie Leibovitz less than 12 hours before he was murdered.
Following the photo session, radio personality Dave Sholin arrived at the Dakota for an interview with Lennon to promote the Double Fantasy album.
When the interview came to a close, Lennon remarked, “I consider that my work won’t be finished until I’m dead and buried and I hope that’s a long, long time.

I have included six medleys below; three featuring Lennon with the Beatles, and three highlighting his solo years.
Listen … and celebrate his life.
