To mark the day, as I have a few others times in this blog, I looked back at a prior post and it read:
"The first home he lived in was at 9 Newcastle Road, Wavertree, Liverpool - three names which each contain nine letters. Newcastle Road was his grandfather's house, and while living there Lennon later wrote One After 909 (editor's note: Frequently, the Fab Faux will take the state at either 9:09 or 9:10pm as a tribute). Continues Lennon, "I lived in 9 Newcastle Road. I was born on the ninth of October, the number follows me around."
Other notable coincidences:
Revolution 9 was probably the main reason for the remasters release album date being chosen as 9 September 2009.
Most importantly from the notes above, the great John Lennon was born on Wednesday 9 October 1940 in Liverpool, England.
