In celebration of John Lennon's 75th birthday, an all-star concert event took over the Theatre at Madison Square Garden. The Imagine: John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert included performances by Willie Nelson, John Fogerty, Peter Frampton, Steven Tyler, The Roots, and several other iconic musical figures. The room was packed with a diverse range of musical faces in celebration of the late Beatle, and as Yoko Ono asserted in his glory, "Rock & Roll is here to stay!"
According to Yoko, on the event's website, “John’s art continues to give hope, light and happiness to generations of people everywhere. His belief that each of us can change the world continues to inspire the human race to believe in themselves, and his influence is everlasting in everyone’s hearts as we all share in the possibilities and power of music.”
