Why?

His lyrics were predictive of future events and they were clearly poetry.

“The Times They Are A-Changin”, “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Just Like a Woman,” “Mr. Tambourine Man,” “Like a Rolling Stone.” need I go further?

Now we have John Lennon’s observation below.

John Lennon didn’t become a U.S. citizen, but he had plans of becoming one but was killed before he could apply.

He loved this country and used to say he should have been born in New York.

 

 

His citizenship papers were held up for possession of cannabis and petty theft, while still a minor (Source)

John Lennon was given his U.S. Resident Alien registration (his “green card”) on the bicentennial of the American revolution: July 4, 1976.

He was also informed that he would be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship in 1981.

He died in 1980 so he didn’t have a chance to become a citizen.

 It would be a serious mistake for the Beatles  not to be honored as well.

 

 

 

 

THE END
