In honour of John Lennonâ€™s 70th Birthday on Saturday October 9, 2010, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and BoxofVision LLC will today seal three authorized time capsules to carry his legacy to future generations.
The time capsules will be preserved and stored until they are opened in a ceremonial presentation on October 9, 2040.
The time capsules will be stored at three significant locations to the Lennon legacy, these include – The Rock Hall in Cleveland, Ohio, The John Moores University in Liverpool, England and Reykjavik, Iceland, home of the Imagine Peace Tower.
With over a hundred fan contributions, Lennonâ€™s entire catalogue of post-Beatles recordings, 6 sealed notes from Yoko Ono, and other artefacts, the three time capsules will each include a â€œJohn Lennon: Box Of Vision.â€ The stunning table top Box is comprised of newly restored prints of Lennon LP artwork, a complete in-depth discography, a newly commissioned essay on Johnâ€™s career, beautiful reproductions of classic Lennon album ads and more.
Replicas of the aforementioned â€œJohn Lennon: Box Of Visionâ€ are available to order direct from www.boxofvision.com/johnlennon, and are the perfect coffee table accompaniment to the newly re-mastered Lennon catalogue this Christmas.
