Fans remember Lennon
NEW YORK – A crush of fans circled a flower-graced mosaic in Central Park’s Strawberry Fields and sang lyrics from Imagine today to honour Beatles legend John Lennon on his 70th birthday.
On the day when the Liverpool lad would have become a septuagenarian, thousands of fans around the world gathered to remember the floppy-haired British superstar who just wanted to Give Peace A Chance.
“His music speaks to people of any nation, any age, and that’s why I think so many young people now who never would have known him still find him so appealing,” said Karen Kriendler Nelson, 69, who lives nearby and often visits the mosaic that spells out Lennon’s song Imagine. (AP)
