Happy birthday John Lennon

Had John Lennon not been gunned down by crazed so-called fan Mark Chapman, the late Beatle would be fast approaching his 70th birthday – on October 9th.

To mark his birthday plans are afoot to stage a one-off massive concert in America’s trendy New York City, BBC News tells us. Already some big musical hitters have been confirmed to pay tribute to our John, including Pattie Smith, Jackson Brown, Cyndi Lauper and Aimee Mann with more acts to be announced in the coming weeks. Sir Macca anyone? Ringo Starr? Yoko?

The event will take place at the Beacon Theatre on November 12th with all proceeds going to the Playing For Change Foundation. Lady Gaga & Iggy Pop are also expected to pay tribute to John Lennon in separate shows in October.
