YouTube apparently wanted in on the action so for 24 hours over Saturday, a series of videos from famous friends and admirers will be streaming on the network's homepage. Along with a personal message from Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, clips from Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, Aerosmith, the Jonas Brothers, Jeff Bridges, Tony Hawk, Bret Michaels, DMC from Run-DMC), Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Bill Walton and others will reflect on the songwriter's legacy.
Ono is also opening the devotion up to fans from all over, with a plea for fans to submit their own thoughts on video.
â€œI hope youâ€™ll join me and a family of peace around the world to celebrate this very special day,â€ Ono says in a release.Â â€œSend in your own video tribute to YouTube, and we will share in keeping Johnâ€™s memory alive."
And, as you'll notice, Lennon got his own interactive Google logo doodle, with a hint of "Imagine."
Eight of Lennon's albums were given the remaster and reissue treatment upon release earlier this week.
