New York (AP) – John Lennon’s iconic round glasses and shaggy 1970s mane
will now adorn a U.S. stamp.

Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, and their son, Sean Lennon, were in New York
City’s Central Park Friday to celebrate the U.S. Postal Service’s release of
a stamp honoring the late Beatle. Hundreds of Beatles fans gathered for the
event. The former Beatle was assassinated on December 8, 1980.
