Happy 70th Birthday, John Lennon

Thirty-three years ago, long before John Lennon was shot and killed, the late great David Levine imagined what he would look at when he was sixty-four, or, today, when he would have been seventy.

Something tells me that Lennon, quite a line artist himself, would have been a little tickled to see himself in the future this way.

For more on Lennon, Fresh Air offers a typically great listen, including snippets of interviews with McCartney, Starr, Cynthia Lennon, and Jon Weiner, the historian who wrote about his battle with the FBI, and, in fact, forced the agency to give up the papers chronicling its harrassment of this great man.
