Remembering John Lennon – 40 Years Later

Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have paid tribute to John Lennon on the 40th anniversary of his death — December 8th, 1980.

As she has done for many years, Yoko posted the same message — just changing the number of years — which speaks to the need to get guns off the streets.

And Paul and Ringo reflected on their fallen friend with messages and photos.
