Free Admission to John Lennon Exhibit at RnR Hall of Fame Annex NYC Offered This Weekend

"Free entry" is always swell when in an expensive town like NYC and it's even better when the "free entry" is for something that is pretty cool. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC is offering free admission to the John Lennon: The New York City Years exhibit tomorrow and Saturday to commemorate what would have been Lennon's 69th birthday.

Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, donated a variety of items for the exhibit, including private letters and photos, instruments and iconic clothing, as well as the glasses Lennon was shot in and the brown paper bag that the coroner's office gave her with John Lennon's effects after he was murdered. When asked why, Ono said, "This was a guy who like king of the world, you know...just turned into a brown paper bag."
