John Lennon's birthday celebrated
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is to celebrate what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday with a weekend-long homage to the Beatles.
The Rock Hall, in Cleveland, will honour the Imagine star's life in a series of events from October 8 until October 10.
The events will include the dedication of a time capsule containing Lennon's post-Beatles recordings and fan contributions, special tours of the Beatles exhibit, and film reel highlights from the Beatles' and Lennon's inductions into the Hall of Fame.
Throughout the weekend, fans will be invited to sign a large birthday card expressing their wishes for the world.
Lennon was born on October 9, 1940. He was killed in 1980 outside his Manhattan apartment building.
