    Imagine an 80-year-old John Lennon.

    CNN, Sep 22 2020 10:39 AM ET

    Sean Lennon is helping celebrate what would have been his father John Lennon's 80th birthday. The younger Lennon will interview his brother Julian Lennon, Paul McCartney and Elton John in a two-part documentary, BBC Radio 2 has announced. "John Lennon would have turned 80 years old on Friday 9 October," a press release reads. "Hosted by his youngest son Sean in his first-ever radio show about his father, this is a celebratory, musical, family portrait of the legendary musician. It sheds fresh light on John's remarkable life in music – one which created some of the most important musical milestones of the 20th Century – and also delves deep into his incredible back catalogue." The documentary is scheduled to be broadcast over two days in October.

    The elder Lennon was shot and killed by Mark David Chapman outside Lennon's apartment building, the Dakota, in New York City on December 8, 1980.

    Wesley Stace, a British singer/songwriter, has released 26 albums, five under his own name and 21 as "John Wesley Harding." He took the name from the title of a 1968 Bob Dylan album. Today on SiriusXM's Underground Garage channel, Chris Carter played When The Beatles Hit America, a song from 1990 which predicts the Beatles will get back together in 1993. A very peculiar song – but a nice fantasy!

    But wait – there's more! Bob Dylan was pictured on the Sgt. Pepper's album cover and Dylan hid the Beatles' faces on the cover of the John Wesley Harding album:

    In December 2021, a new video for My Sweet Lord was released, supposedly to celebrate the 50th anniversary of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass album – but the album was released November 27, 1970. Anyway, among the cameos are Ringo Starr, Jeff Lynne, Patton Oswalt, Mark Hamill, Jon Hamm, Joe Walsh, Darren Criss, Rosanna Arquette and Weird Al Yankovic. Hurry and watch!

    Helen Shapiro began recording at age 14. Her song Walkin' Back To Happiness was on the Hot 100 for only one week in 1961 but was a number-one hit in the UK. It was one of five top-ten British hits she had in 1961-62. Here she is, at age 17, serenading three of the Beatles with her 1963 hit Look Who It Is on an episode of BBC-TV's Ready, Steady, Go! The lyrics were written by Mike Hawker, who also wrote Walkin' Back To Happiness and Dusty Springfield's I Only Want To Be With You.
