John Lennon's 70th Birthday

John Lennon's 70th Birthday October 9th marks what would have been the 70th birthday of John Lennon. To celebrate this anniversary, his solo CDs are being reissued, along with a series of compilations and box sets. There's also a new documentary, LENNONYC, on the last 10 years of his life,  and a number of other events scheduled for the next couple months. (There will be a free screening of LENNONYC in Central Park at 7p on October 9.) Rolling Stone has a nice slideshow called John & Yoko: A New York Love Story, that features a series of photographs by Allan Tannenbaum, taken in 1980. And of course we're big fans of Lennon and Ono's LP and 45 single cover designs, which can be found here.

Here are some of our favorite and most memorable John Lennon (and Yoko Ono) magazine covers. If you've got some that we missed, please let us know and we'll add them in.
