Share your favorite John Lennon stories, memories, songs, anything here in honor of the great man.

I'd just like to say thanks for your music and your tireless efforts for peace and equality in the world. You'd be happy to know that there are others who are trying to carry your torch in pursuit of these dreams....Bono from U2 being one of them.

Your music still inspires me and I wish you were still here.

They are screening Yellow Submarine and having a Lennon Singalong at the Alamo Drafthouse tonight.

Last June, we celebrated Paul McCartney’s 64th birthday with a Beatles sing-along party. This October, John Lennon would be celebrating his 66th birthday, and so we decided that a man who managed to make the whole world pause and contemplate giving peace a chance deserves his own sing-along party as well. We’ll be building on the songs we had in the last Beatles Sing-Along (focusing exclusively on tracks that showcase Lennon’s songwriting prowess), and we’ll be going further along into his solo career, too. Because even though it’s officially the season of Halloween, we can all use a little bit of dreaming of a Happy Christmas, when War Is Over.

Mayhaps I'll go.

I'm going to get tarred and feathered for this, but he really didn't do *that* much for the peace movement. He wrote a few songs, appeared at a few protests (including the bed-in thing, which was just as much about self-promotion, IMO). Many other artists from back in the day did the same thing.

The one thing that particular group probably is responsible for, though, is for infusing the idea that celebrities can get involved, paving the way for people like Bono, who are actually hands-on.

Nonetheless, he did make some great music.

Last night they loved you
