# CCXLII…”Lennon”-ism…

Today’s post is focused on the fact that today, October 9, would have been the 74th birthday of late Beatles guitarist John Lennon and, in an odd twist of fate, the 39th birthday of lesser known musician Sean Ono Lennon, his son.  A legend in his time, John’s musical contributions will not soon be forgotten…Sean’s legacy is that his father was one of the best musicians of my generation and hasn’t reached the level of his father…yet!

Today is also the birthday of the following; late The Who bassist John Entwistle (1944-2002), musical icon Jackson Browne (1948), Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, Sharon Osbourne was born in 1952, everyone’s favorite germophobe, “Monk”s Tony Shalhoub, was born in 1953, star of “NCIS: New Orleans”, Scott Bakula, was born in 1954 and “Eddie and the Cruisers” star Michael Pare (1958).

Finishing the list are director Guillermo del Toro (1964), late WWE superstar Eddie Guerrero (1967-2005), former ECW legend Stevie Richards (1971), the star of “Superman Returns” (who is also portraying Ray Palmer/The Atom in Season 3 of “Arrow”), Mr. Brandon Routh, was born in 1979, and a name not on the list, Colin Donnell (who played resident southpaw Tommy Merlyn in Season 1 of “Arrow”) was born in 1982.
