This entry from the American Masters series focuses on the life of John Lennon during his post-Beatles years. Lennon, his wife, Yoko Ono, and their son, Sean Lennon, called New York City home in the 1970s.
This 2010, 90-minute drama stars Actor Christopher Eccleston, of Doctor Who fame, as John Lennon; the storyline follows Lennon's journey from his days as rhythm guitarist for the Beatles to his untimely death, by which time he had become an icon.
In July 2009, Paul McCartney performed the inaugural concerts at New York's Citi Field. The three-night concert series provided McCartney, former bass player for the Beatles, the opportunity to perform a tribute to his days as a Beatle and as the founder of the 1970s group, Wings.
After the death of former Beatle George Harrison, a tribute concert for the Beatles' lead guitarist was organized and filmed in 2002. Those paying tribute to the "quiet Beatle" include Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Billy Preston and Ravi Shankar.
The drummer for the Beatles, Ringo Starr, joins up with the band The Roundheads for a concert that was filmed in the Genessee Theater in Waukegan, Illinois. Songs include Beatles hits associated with Ringo, such as "Yellow Submarine" and "A Little Help from My Friends."
