Lennon was my personal favorite Beatle. For many reasons. Mostly his early songs. I very much enjoy the first three Beatles records. I like pop song, don’t judge!

30 years ago today John Lennon was murdered. He is still considered one of the most influential musicians and song writers of popular music. Rest in peace my friend, rest in peace.,,
