Fans celebrate John Lennon on birthday

Fans around the world are marking what would have been the 70th birthday of John Lennon. A large crowd was gathering at Central Park's Strawberry Fields in New York City, where there is a memorial. A benefit concert was also happening nearby. The ex-Beatle and peace activist was gunned down 30 years ago outside his apartment building near Central Park. Celebrations began on Friday. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland dedicated a time capsule in honour of Lennon containing several CDs, DVDs and books and two notes written by his widow Yoko Ono.
