RIP John Lennon: A Dreamer, But Not The Only One

RIP John Lennon: A Dreamer, But Not The Only One

  • My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
    ~John Lennon

  • Today marks the 31st anniversary of John Lennon's death. The celebrated singer, songwriter, and activist would have turned 71 years old this past October. At the age of 40, he was shot and killed at the entrance of his Manhattan apartment by Mark David Chapman. As an artist and a founding member of The Beatles, Lennon has been hailed as one of the most successful performers of all time, responsible for 25 number one singles in the U.S. As a political and peace activist, Lennon is widely recognized for his anti-war anthems.

    Here are some of my favorite John Lennon songs from his days with The Beatles and his solo career.

  • And of course, people across the web are paying their respects to the legendary artist.
