Beatles singer and guitarist John Lennon and son Sean Lennon were both born Oct. 9 exactly 35 years apart. John Lennon, who would become one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, was born in Liverpool in the middle of a German air raid in 1940.

Sean Lennon was born in New York in 1975, and while John and Yoko Ono did not attempt to move him into music, the youngster soon took to writing songs, eventually learning guitar, bass, piano and drums. Sean Lennon, who bears an uncanny resemblance to both his mother and father, has worked on songs with artists such as Lenny Kravitz. He has also worked with the band Cibo Mato and released solo material, including the single "Home," which featured a video directed by Spike Jonze.

Recently Sean Lennon and girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl posed for a photograph recreating John and Yoko's famous Rolling Stone cover. John appears in the photo fully clothed on his back in the role of his mother, Yoko Ono, while Charlotte poses nude next to him in the role John Lennon.
