Beatles' John Lennon and George Harrison Honored In London

(Gibson) The Beatles' John Lennon and George Harrison have received a Blue Plaque in London. The commemoration was at 94 Baker Street, the site of the Apple Boutique clothing shop, which was owned in the 1960s by the band's company Apple Corps Ltd.

A plaque to Lennon was already on the site, but has now been replaced with one that also remembers Harrison, who died in 2001.

The plaque was unveiled by Rod Davis, the banjo player in Lennon's first band, The Quarrymen, who formed in 1956 and would later become The Silver Beatles, then The Beatles.

Blue Plaques on historically-significant buildings are awarded by the cultural organization English Heritage. But English Heritage only honor people who have died, which is why Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr do not feature. more on this story
