Si John Lennon itinampok sa taklob-pahina ng
Newsweek Magazine October 17, 1998 issue

paslangin ni Mark David Chapman.

Larawang Tribiya
          Bukod sa musika at kaniyang mga hindi malilimutang awit na “Imagine” at “Give Peace a Chance,” nakilala si John Lennon sa kaniyang hayagang kritisismo laban sa paglahok ng mga Amerikano sa Vietnam War, at ang mga awiting ito ay naging anthems ng mga anti-war movements sa buong daigdig.
