October 9th would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday. Imagine...! John Lennon was taken from the world too soon, as was his idol Buddy Holly. One would like to think the two of them are together somewhere ... jamming. More than any other entertainment figure in the 20th Century, John Lennon changed popular music, politics and culture, and even fashion, and I think he would be amazed to see how iconic he has become. He was an incredibly gifted and talented artist, both musicially and artistically. He was a poet and a philosopher, and he was a cool dude. He is still greatly missed by the world.
