Lennon’s influence felt 31 years after death

While most people will be spending this week gearing up for the holidays and forming their in-law invasion plans, I will spend it listening to nothing but the Beatles and contemplating what the world would be without the influence of one of the most well-loved men in music's history.  He had his issues just like every other artist but still managed to stay true to himself, regardless of whatever adversity he faced.John Lennon lived from Oct. 9, 1940 to his untimely death on Dec. 8, 1980.  From his times as a young boy in Liverpool to his life as an adult in the states, he was able to accomplish many things that most people couldn't even dream of.  He has had enormous success as a musician and as a political activist.  Not many can say they have a vastly successful musical career as part of a group or as a solo artist, let alone both.Add to that the fact that he was also a powerful political and peace activist, and he has a pretty impressive résumé.  His creativity and ideals have lasted through generations and are still being celebrated today.  The proof of that is in the hundreds of thousands of pieces of memorabilia sold or the innumerous visitors to the Strawberry Fields monument in Central Park.
