On this date in 1940, John Winston Lennon is born to Julia Stanley and Alfred Lennon at Oxford Street Maternity Hospital in Liverpool, England. Would have been 69 today, had he not gone away. A working class hero is something to be.
So all you people in the cheaper seats clap your hands for Mr. Lennon, MBE in honor of his birthday. And the rest of you, just rattle your jewelry.
