John Lennon And George Harrison Honored With Blue Plaque In London

Beatles legends John Lennon and George Harrison have been honored with a blue plaque in London. The plaque will mark the site of the band's former Apple Records boutique and commemorate the lives of the two deceased Mop Tops.

The plaque replaces one that had previously been installed at the site honoring Lennon only. The new plaque reads, "John Lennon, M.B.E., 1940-1980, and George Harrison, M.B.E., 1943-2001, worked here."

It was installed by the organization English Heritage, who says it "commemorates the link between notable figures of the past and the buildings in which they lived and worked. It is a uniquely successful means of connecting people and place."

It was unveiled in a brief ceremony by Rod Davis, the former banjo player in Lennon's first band, the Quarrymen.
