Dearest John, I want to wish you a happy Birthday. Along with a prayer for yourself, and your family. Being only 25 years old, I like many other fans my age, learned about you through your legacy...and my parents. I think you really were an angel and your voice was your gift. I respect you simply because you said what was really on your mind. Being a fellow "Libra" I can truly dig that. I just wish that I could have had the chance to have met you in person. I am a fan of the Beatles...however, it is your individuality that draws my respect to you...John Lennon. God Bless You and Happy Birthday.

Well, you would have been 60 this time out. I can't begin to tell you the impact you had on my life. Or how much sadness your premature loss has brought me over the last 20 years. My 7 year old is now a fan of yours. It makes me very sad I can't point to your picture and say "John's still making music and happily living in New York." Instead I have to tell her "John's dead. He was shot to death." That just breaks my heart everytime I have to say the words. It amazes me how many kids and people much younger than myself discover you and the other three each year. I am old enough to remember the Beatles. It was a magical time. The thing that amazes me is how the kids seem to sense that magic even 30 years on. You should be here with us. You deserved those peaceful later years with Yoko. God knows you guys went thru hell on account of the fans and press. I guess in a way you are here since your music is everywhere. That's a good thing. The world is a much colder place without you in it physically. Thank god we still have your thoughts and music to see us thru. I don't know if you can hear these thoughts. But I'll write it down all the same. Happy 60th birthday old man. This old Beatle fan really misses you. Tim

John, I'll be 16 on October 9. I don't remember all the happy times in my life, but I will always remeber the day I heard "Imagine" for the first time. I've loved and admired you ever since. I cried when my father told me you were killed and I wished I died that day instead of you... I still can't believe you're not here. I feel your presence in your music, I hear your voice in the wind, I see your face in the stars... You don't have to be alive to live. And I promise you, people will never forget you, I won't let them! Thank you, thank you for being John Lennon! Happy birthday!

...I really don't know what to say. I guess this is like anyone else's day, but John made such an impact on people's lives, before and after his death. John is like my fave beatle and solo artist, and I hope that his family is still coping with his death and happy b-day john!! *feels like she's going to cry* Oh, sheesh, if only he knew how much his songs meant to us. But up in heaven I bet he's enjoying all this popularity in this chat room, and all of that. So, I'm done bickering, happy 60th, John!!

When someone askes me who my role model is, I will always say John Lennon. All the incredibly crazy and amazing things you have done, have changed me completely for the rest of my life. I can't even explain how much my mind and heart opened when I discovered you. Now, all I want to do is love everyone I can, and not take life as seriously as some people would want us to. You have inspired me more than I can explain. Though I am only sixteen, I understand so much because of you. Thank you John, and happy birthday!! We all live on forever through those who love us!!

John Lennon? oh where to start.. this is a man who changed my whole life, my whole way of thinking. His music has inspired me so incredibly much.... as I started to become a fan and bought the Anthology collection and the CD's I began to relize this was no ordinary man this was a musical genius. Every time I listen to his music or any of that of the Beatles I hear somthing more beautiful and more amazing then anything I've ever experienced in all my life. If he were still here today I know for a fact he would have given even more of his genius over the past 20 years. I just want to wish John Lennon a very VERY Happy Birthday where ever he is. I also want to wish Sean a VERY happy birthday, he is too a very special person who I'm sure will bring us great music for years to come. I love you John, Sean, Julian, and Yoko! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN!!!!!!!!!!

Dear John, Happy Birthday. I just want to thank u for your amazing music. I'm 17 years old and out of all my friends I am the only one who likes older music. No one seems to understand why I love you. I tell them its the music and the dreams. You dreamnt of peace and fought so hard for it. People call me a dreamer and I love it. You taught me to be a dreamer and to go for what I believe in. You have taught me many things in the years that I have been a fan and i treasure this. Though you no longer walk the streets with us in body, your spirit bounces around the world. You have a special place reserved in my heart. Look down from your cloud in the sky, smile and stum your guitar. Sing a son because you are loved. And to you, Yoko. I admire you. You've carried John's legacy on, conyinuing to carry the flame that the two of you had. I know this must me a very difficult time for you but just know that people all over the world support you. Thank you. rayne.

You have influenced me in so many ways with your music, intelligence, and candor; and with your liberal politics, spirituality, and lifestyle. I also really admire that you were- and still are, in memory- one of the few big celebrities who wasn't afraid to bring society's, well, bull shit to light, and you did it with such acute wit. Sometimes you offended people for saying what other people only wish they could say, and I really admire and can relate to that (it's not easy being that person). As a young female artist, I really appreciate your later interest in feminism (I don't care what anyone says, I LOVE "Woman is the Nigger of the World") and interest in conceptual art and the possibilities of music outside the arena of pop- and the fact that you turned the experimental into the mainstream. Of course your message of peace lives on, and although I'm not a hardcore Christian or anything I think you understood Jesus' message much better than many people around today. Sincerely and respectfully, Elizabeth Caudy

"Wherever you are, you are here." Dear John, Words cannot begin to describe how much happiness you and your music have brought me over the years. Whenever life becomes almost unbearable, your words and your voice never fail to give me perspective and hope. You inspire me to dream my own dreams, to continue to work for social justice, freedom, and equality for all persons, and to never give up on what positive changes can be made in this world. Your genius, your spirit, your honesty--there has never been another artist like you, and there shall never be again. Thank you for sharing your enormous talents with us...you had to give so much of yourself. In the process of exorcizing those demons, you put feelings into words like no one else has ever done before--you made them so tangible, so real. I wish you were physically here with us today, but I know your spirit can still be found whenever we listen to your beautiful voice. John, on this, the occasion of your 60th birthday, I send you my love and my respect. And Yoko, thank you so much for all you have given John's fans--thank you for the music and the memories you have shared with us. Thank you for continuing to carry out the work you and John had begun together. I love you, John. Alison

John, You meant so much to so many people and still do. Every thing you stood for was great! You were making a difference in society and for that i am grateful. The world is messed up because of people like Chapman who take the lives of the ones that could actually make a difference in the world. I got your picture hanging up and it will stay there till i die! In my eyes you are a hero, our hero. Chapman should have been put to death!!! He not only killed a legend, but also a friend of the world. We loved you and we will always love you John. You will stay in my heart for an eternity. :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, John.

I know that you are here somewhere, and I have wonderful thoughts of you and so much gratefulness for the music!

Time greets you like an old familiar friend, with tales forgotten and promises broken. But it hasn't changed you. The flowers in the garden don't speak of peace these days, we have'nt changed our ways, same lazy, blinkered haze. But true words stay in the heart. The kids could use a wise man amidst this sea of clowns, need a prophet with a punchline to bring them down to earth, but that's o.k.... Because the spirit of soul, man shakes our bones 'till we're old, man You just do what you can, man and leave the rest up to fate. So if it's not too late, I came here to say- Happy Birthday, John Lennon.

I have been a fan of John Lennon's music ever since I was 13 years of age. My Favorite songs of his are so many I couldn't list them all., Okay maybe just a few. "Oh, my love", "Imagine", "Woman", "Working Class Hero" and so many others. I wanted to be in Central Park on Dec. 8 of this year but being 3000 miles away I don't think I could make it (having a job and all). So when I saw this web page I knew that it would be possible for me to be there in sprit. Thank you so much John and yoko for giving me enjoyment with all of your creativity and music . Yoko ono I don't care what anyone says about you because through your efforts to keep john's memory alive you have shown your love for him and for all of us as fans of his. Thanks to you his music will not be forgotten. All of us together we share the love of music, life, and the hope for a better tomorrow. Happy Birthday John Lennon

'Bless you, wherever you are... windswept child on a shooting star' - happy 60th John. My love for you started when I was 7 years old and first heard 'I Am the Walrus' - it reminded me so much of Lewis Carroll at the time. Now more than 20 years later you have influenced my own life and that of others to a great extent that you will never know. I miss you John, and the beautiful music you would be making now. Happy Birthday John and Sean, and love to Yoko who keeps your message of peace and love flowing throughout the world. Peace. Pru (UK)

Dear John, Tomorrow is your sixtieth birthday, and I am so thankful to be going to school in the city so that I can for the first time visit the Strawberry Fields. You have been an inspiration for so many, and I thank you for that. The words of Sappho could not express it any more perfectly..."Although they are only breath, words which [you] command are immortal." Happy Birthday John... Love, Marci

Happy Birthday, John! I know you're still making music, just in your own unique way. People don't even realise what you're doing, or when you influence them. :) Wish you were still here in body, but your spirit works hard every day. Luh ya!

My Dearest John, the right words fail to come to me tonight as i sit here and mourn for the world. i am so sorry that we had to lose someone who changed the world as much as you did. i truly love you with all of my heart. even though you cant be with us on earth, i know you are in a very happy place, and you know how religously i worship you. tomorrow you are 60 years old, and think of all that you have done. your family and friends should be very proud of the man you were, the man you are. even now as tears fall from my eyes i know that you are somewhere praying for the people in the world to love each other like you have always wanted us to. i just wish more people would have listened to your words, and no one would have to be afraid. you are my world. i love you.

I would not be doing the music I do today had it not been for John Lennon starting a band at age 15! He also showed us all that helping the world's causes is so important. Live on John, and say hi to my father for me. Both you and he showed me music and love! Glad both of your were born! Happy Birthday!

Well, Johnny, Happy Birthday. I hope if you're somewhere looking down, you'll see all of the people who still love you. I've always heard that you don't die until everyone has forgotten about you, if that's the case, you'll live forever.

I was born 6 years after your death John, but still I feel like I know you, you've given me the greatest gifts on earth, music,love and a role model. Without you I wouldn't be playing music. At times when I have been bullied or just when I was upset, you help me through it. I want to make your spirit live on by playing your music and using your ideals to guide me through life. Peace John, and thank you! Phil Coupland //0-0\

***Happy 60th Birthday to the 'One and Only' John Lennon*** John, I was born in 1976, so didn't get the chance to join in when it was all going on. I often wish that I had been born in an earlier decade so that I could have fully enjoyed the Beatles years through to your solo career. Having said that, I am eternally grateful for the music that you gave to the world. This will be the factor that ensures that you are never forgotten. Wish you could have been here with us, but fate determined otherwise. But like you say, WE ALL SHINE ON !!! Lots of Love, Sal.

Happy Birthday John!!! It's hard to believe that you're not alive and not here with us anymore. with all the people who still remember-- and all the people who have kept your spirit inside their heart--- it's indeed hard to believe that you're up there now. Tonight, October 9, here in this troubled part of the world--the Philippines-- we will celebrate your birthday with the annual rock n roll concert we have religiously attended. How I wish you could still let out a riff and sing your peace anthem now that our country is beset with war and conflict which have brought us international embarassment. Tonight we will party, tonight we're going to rock and roll because tonight is John's birthday---John Lives ON!!!

john you've touched the lives of so many and will never be forgotten. you really got out there and made the most of the time u had on this earth which is something i am yet to do...thanx for all the great memories and inspiration that u gave and continue to give to the world. remember, it doesnt matter what other people think about what you do, as long as you make the most of what you've been given....u only get one chance at life....i think people who bother prying into others lives and analyse everything they do basically shows that theyve got boring lives and no aspiration to be more .........happy birthday legend from chrispy
