Oct. 9: The birthdate for John Lennon, John Entwistle and Jackson Browne

It’s hard to imagine John Lennon being 71 years old …but I wish we’d had a chance to see it. John Winston Lennon was born in Liverpool on Oct. 9, 1940.

Thirty-five years later on this day (1975), Sean Taro Ono Lennon was born. The “beautiful boy” was Lennon’s only child with Yoko Ono. Lennon retired from music for five years to focus on his family.

In 1980, just weeks after he turned 40, Lennon released “(Just Like) Starting Over.” http://youtu.be/iAJ2AoEwDvY

 

In 1944, bassist for The Who, John Alec Entwistle, was born in a London suburb.   http://youtu.be/TVl39LBZGMw

 

And in 1948, Clyde Jackson Browne, was born in Heidelberg, Germany(where his American serviceman father was stationed).
