  4. John, voice of the people, a great visionary, his music, his words, his life, his LOVE were all a testament to what one person can do to make us stop and think, stop and act, be inspired to change the world for the better – one emotion, one feeling, one experience, one step at a time! We love and miss you! God Bless you.

    John Lennon was gunned down on this day, 32 years ago. The dream was over. Dylan’s tribute to his friend, “Roll On John” says it all and is highly recommended listening on this day of days. Miss you John.

    John’s energy is alive and powerful thru out all eternity, Imagine that ! <3

  10. Mike Wilcox says:

    John is part of my day, my week, my years, my life. His moving words of peace and the thoughts of what could have been. John lives in all of those who believe that peace is what the world needs … those that just imagine.

    John Lennon
    I feel a connection between you and I
    a working class hero, I be –
    I wish you lived in my lifetime
    and your musical genius I could see.

    With the others –
    Penny Lane, Revolution
    and Magical Mystery Tour –
    Your political intrest and desire for peace,
    your words like a symphony of
    honey into my ears, pour.

    A life time full of acquired talent
    and humorous quotes
    come alive in Mean Mr Mustard
    and Polythene Pam
    and other funny little anecdotes.

    True Love you found in Yoko –
    before you were ‘a bit of a lad’
    a scar left by your absent mother
    for this I and millions are eternally glad.

    After the Beatles you were still,
    flyig high…
    You found yourself,  your own  in
    Imagine, Woman and Jealous Guy.

    I love all the Beatles but you,
    my favourite be –
    I think its because of your social consciousness
    that through your eyes I can see.

  12. I was only 12 when I heard that John had been shot. I was a HUGE Beatles fan back then and still am. I can remember jumping up and down with tennis rackets emulating the fab four back then with a group of my friends….God, the innocence of it all. John is still an inspiration to me now at 43 years old as I work hard crafting my songs as a solo singer/songwriter. Yoko, I hope he is still there with you, always…because his inspiration is always with me. Much love, Shaun x


  14. Robert Stewart says:

    Seeing John and the Beatles singing Twist and Shout all those years ago made me realise how powerful music could be, then through the years with all the twists and turns with all the different styles of music …..Julia…..tomorrow never knows, Across the Universe, Give Peace a chance, Oh Yoko …..the list goes on….a real inspiration to generations of music lovers and johns music broke down the barriers 🙂 Could not be pigeon-holed !! Live on John 🙂

    John Lennon has manged to influence my life so much even though I was born 15 years after his death. This is the power he has through his music and words. He will never be forgotten, he is a legend. he has seen me through the hardest and the happiest times of my life, and I am so saddened that I never had the chance to even see him. People like John Lennon don’t come around often. It’s was brilliant and we always been deeply missed.

  16. Adrian k says:

    RIP john, his music lives on

  17. Anna Milit says:

    Sem palavras para descrever sua influencia sobre tudo que faço. Minha inspiração. ♥

  18. Barbara Lyon says:

    Thinking of you Sean and John today. The song always makes me cry.

  19. Victoria says:

    John Lennon is my idol, my example to follow, I am 14 years old, but I love him, becouse he teaches me you don’t need be catholic for fight for the peace. My biggest wish is meet and embrace him but I can’t. I LOVE YOU JOHN! This society needs you. :’)

  21. Martina says:

    Il tuo messaggio è, e sarà per sempre vivo nei nostri cuori e nelle nostre menti!

  22. Guillermo Macchiavello says:

    Miss u Lennon.

  23. My name is Mauro Guerreiro, I´m a veteran musician from Rio de Janeiro.
    During my youth I loved The Beatles, especially John Winston Lennon, who was and still is my biggest musical idol. In my whole life I never thought I would say that I loved a man (lol), but I know today that I loved John Lennon a lot.
    I’ve made a song as a tribute to Lennon. The song is called “One minute for Lennon”. During one minute I talk to Lennon asking him to send news, wishing he’s well. I hope you like it.

  24. Jann says:

    Always thinking of Johns contributions to the world.

  25. jnrpartner says:

    Thank you – simple but heartfelt. May we all continue to imagine

  26. Allison says:

    John, I wasn’t alive yet when you were at the peak of your music career. I wish to let you know that even though
    you are not here anymore, your story lives on. You have been a great inspiration to me, John.
    Also Geore, Paul, and Ringo. You taught me the very important and sincere virtue in life which is to keep
    peace in our hearts. John, you probably are laughing up theree because of strangers weeping over
    you but that’s how it truly is. You sang about giving peace a chance and here we are, doing the very best
    we can in order to preserve that. That’s how much we love you John. May you rest in peace up there.
    Also, my grandmother probably is up there too. Would you say ‘hi’ to her for me?

  27. Joswell says:

    Aunque físicamente no este, sus letras, su música, su lucha por la paz seguirá presente en el tiempo. Porque John vive en quienes le recuerdan, en quienes luchan por la paz, en quien intenta ser feliz. Gracias por enseñarme el sentido de la vida, gracias por demostrarme que “Todo es mas claro cuando estas enamorado”, gracias por tanto John, de verdad gracias…

  28. Still can’t imagine without crying.

    John is just as much as an inspiration as he always was to me, in fact more. My play Beatle Mal’s Legendary Band, about John’s old mate Mal Evans is hopefully going to tour next year and it is in the true creative spirit of John & the Beatles. Hope to bring in to USA and meet many other fab lovers of John’s music. Love to Yoko, Sean and to Julian and all for whom John still touches their lives x

  29. Luísa says:

    “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one” John Lennon, since 1940 providing us that peace is the answer for all our doubts. He is not dead. The dreamer and his dreams are still alive.

  30. Dana Camp-Farber says:

    I will always remember John. The insightful, flawed but honest and truthful warrior who fought for right and for peace. I only hope that we learn from our mistakes and that we turn around the frightening direction in which we are headed. Breathe!!!

  31. Reece Thornley says:

    The world misses you John:( such a shame that we lost you but I know you’re in a better place looking down on us all. Your music is inspirational and your legacy is stronger than ever. Thanks for all the joy you’ve brought people over the years and will continue to bring. Keep rockin’ with the rest of them up there!

    All my love,

    Reece Thornley, 17, UK.

  32. Ralph says:

    Thanks john. Your life was surely not long enough, but your existence made a difference in mine.

  33. I was in high school on this very sad, sad day…he’s inspired me throughout my life – to speak my truth and seek compassion and empathy in and for people. He’s become bigger than life and the epitome of peace and social justice. Power to the Peaceful. Aloha from Kauai.
