John Lennon time capsule launched

In honour of John Lennon’s 70th birthday on Saturday October 9, 2010, the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum" and "BoxofVision LLC" will create three authorized time capsules of John Lennon’s post-Beatles recordings and fan contributions, which can be submitted via, to "carry his legacy of peace and love to future generations."

With the cooperation of Yoko Ono Lennon, the time capsules will be preserved and stored until they are opened in a ceremonial presentation on October 9, 2040 (Man, I might be dead! - Middle-Aged Ed.). They will be stored at the Rock Hall in Ohio, and at two additional worldwide locations that have significance to John Lennon’s legacy.

Says Mrs. Ono Lennon, "I am delighted to support this effort to help share John's music and messages of peace and love with the children of today and tomorrow, I know that John's work, life and dreams will help inspire them to bring a better world for everyone. Children Power!"

Along with fan contributions the capsules will include John Lennon’s post-Beatles recordings, newly restored art prints of his LP artwork, a newly commissioned essay on his career and other related items.
