    Default Happ Birthday John Lennon

    John would have been 75 years young today. He was taken 35 years ago. It just doesn't seem possible that it was that long ago.

    He and his mates changed my life. They have had the most influence on me and have given me the greatest joy in life other than my family.

    Happy Birthday John.

    would it be a nice idea to bring lennon songs on uke, as a celebration of an amazing musical life?

    i might put the idea out there on the seasons...

    John wrote my favorite song, Imagine. I dream of a world like the one he dreamed of, no borders, no flags, no religion, no starvation, no greed, only peace and friendship. It should be our World Anthem.
    Funny, this, I'm such a devoted Bluegrass and Classical music fan, but this one Pop song has been on my heart and lips more than any other.
    John was amazing. I wonder if George taught him to play the uke too?
    "Those who bring sunshine and laughter to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    John did play, but I seem to recall reading that it was his aunt who taught him.

    Thanks rappsy for this post, it's nice to remember John on this day rather than on that... other anniversary.

    My sentiments exactly. I started playing guitar at fifteen in 1965 because of the Beatles.

    A few years ago I did a John Lennon Music Marathon on ukulele. Nine Lennon songs for the first nine days of October, leading up to his birthday. I've done numerous Beatles covers as well. Check them out if you like, I'd be happy to share any chords or tabs if I have them.
