He would be 70 today

John Lennon, born today 70 years ago, had a life cut short by an assassin's bullet in New York in 1980. If he were still alive today, who knows what he would have achieved in the global peace movement.  Happy 70th birthday to you, John Lennon, wherever you are.....

Lennon's 1970 debut solo album is generally known everywhere as "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band" but the copy of this album in my collection, printed in Holland, is denoted by a single word Fame across the top right corner of the cover. On the cover's spine, John Lennon - Mother.
Side One: Mother, Hold On, I Found Out, Working Class Hero, Isolation
Side Two: Remember, Love, Well Well Well, Look At Me, God, My Mummy's Dead

Side One: Imagine, Crippled Inside, Jealous Guy, It's So Hard, I Don't Want To Be A Soldier
Side Two: Gimme Some Truth, Oh My Love, How Do You Sleep?, How?, Oh Yoko!

Probably still entangled with US immigration hellbent on sending him back to the UK or trying to make marijuana legal or ruffling a few feathers with his autobiography or having issues with his sons esp. Julian.
