Billboard.com has decided to hold a contest to mark his 70th birth anniversary on the 9th of October. The contest seeks to find that one person who can truly rock on a Lennon tune. The search is on for the best original performance of a John Lennon or a Beatles song by any fan from around the world.
All a person has to do to enter this contest is to just send a video of him or her playing a Beatles or a Lennon tune solo or with a band. The best of the lot would be announced in a forthcoming issue of the Billboard magazine and at the same time would also be featured on the website of Billboard as a part of the exclusive Birthday package for John Lennon.
A really big package also awaits the winner, including eight classic John Lennon solo albums that have been recently reissued by the record label Capitol/EMI, the particular "Power To The People" collection as well as the new and limited edition of the John Lennon Box Of Vision where all your Lennon music can be kept.
