Happy Birthday John Lennon!
Well, that's what the world would have been saying if it hadn't been for a certain Mark David Chapman and an obsession with The Catcher in the Rye. That looney-tune deprived the world of one of the smartest, idiosyncratic, oddball geniuses who ever picked up the six string. He would have been 70 years old tomorrow. Would he have spent the day lying back in his armchair, pipe in hand reading about himself, or calling up Paul McCartney and farting down the receiver. We shall never know.
But, we can try.
Here's a very tongue-in-cheek bit I did on Lennon at 70.
Lennon at 70. A Day In The Life...if he lived.

Danger Mouse from Gnarls Barkley remixed The Beatles White Album with Jay-Z's Black album and created...The Grey Album!
