CLEVELAND (AP) - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday with a weekend-long homage to the Beatles.
The Rock Hall, in Cleveland, will honor Lennon’s life in a series of events from Oct. 8 through Oct. 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 Oct. 9, 1940. He was killed in 1980 outside his Manhattan apartment building.
