VIDEO: Remembering John Lennon on his 75th Birthday

John Lennon has been gone for almost 35 years, but his message still resonates and his music as good today as ever before.

The Beatles heartthrob, singer-songwriter, activist and visionary would have been 75 today and all around the world people have been taking part in birthday celebrations in honor of the late artist.

His music, which ranged from the Lennon-McCartney hits he penned and performed in the 1960s to the timeless anthems he wrote as a solo artist and with wife, Yoko Ono, has been at the center of most tributes.

But his other legacy was his vision of a more peaceful world—a concept that could be achieved, in Lennon’s mind, if people could focus on living their best life and treating other people well today.










Twitter has been flooded with touching tributes in memory of the music legend today.
