FANS QUIETLY HONOR LENNON ON 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF DEATH

Fans of Beatles founder John Lennon remembered him Saturday on the 10th anniversary of his murder with quiet tributes, while the mayor of his British hometown unveiled a plaque honoring the legendary rock 'n' roll star.

Yoko Ono and the couple's 15-year-old son,Sean, will mark the anniversary quietly, said family spokesman Elliott Mintz.

In Liverpool, impresario Tom MacKenzie, 75, immortalized as "Father MacKenzie" in the Beatles' 1966 hit song "Eleanor Rigby," organized a simple ceremony of a minute's silence around the centerpiece of the Cavern Walks shopping mall -- life-size bronze statues of the four members of the Liverpool pop group.

A small crowd gathered earlier at the Beatles Museum as Mayor Dorothy Gavin unveiled a plaque honoring the singer-songwriter and guitarist of the band widely hailed as the greatest rock group of all time.

In Los Angeles, fans were invited to gather at Lennon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and leave flowers and other tributes.
