Happy Birthday John Lennon! Beatles..Still the Best Band EVER!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love the Beatles. I loved them before it was cool. Yeah, right you say…the Beatles have always been cool. No, actually. During the mid-seventies when I was a teenager, the Beatles were not cool. Led Zeppelin was cool. Peter Frampton was cool. The Beatles were a band that didn’t exist anymore. Wings, Ringo, George Harrison and then there was the Plastic Ono Band were cool.

Even though I was ten years late, I was obsessed. I loved them! I was going to name my first born son Paul! I wanted to be a photographer like Linda McCartney. I wanted to move to New York and live with John Lennon! The list goes on.

So, when John was murdered, December 8, 1980, I was traumatized. I still get sick just thinking about that night watching Monday Night Football with friends when Howard Cosell’s voice came on and announced the unthinkable. Coincidently December 8, 1993 became a happy day for me as my son Jack (not Paul) was born. I always felt John was his guardian angel. Crazy, I know, but it’s what I like to hope for.

There are so many great pics of John, so many amazing videos of him, his music, his interviews, it was hard to narrow it down to just one, so here are a few of my favorites.Find the links on my Happy Birthday John Board
