Assorted John news (Pt. 1)

- The next commemorative coin issued by the British Royal Mint will bear the likeness of John Lennon. In a public poll to determine whose face would next be used, John won the vote handily.

- All of Imagine is going to be available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3.

- English Heritage has honored John and Yoko by dedicating a plaque to their former residence at 34 Montagu Place in Marylebone, London, thus designating it a place of "cultural importance."

- No surprise: John is among the top-earning dead celebrities.

- John's final interview to be aired.

- Lastly, John Lennon, "in his own words." (I especially admire this: "No matter what artistic gains I get, or gold records, if I can’t make a success out of my relationship with the people I love, then everything else is bulls—.”)
