John Lennon smirking for a close-up shot while wearing several sunglasses


One pair of sunglasses seems to be not enough to keep Mr. Lennon from squinting his eyes shut on a bright, sunny day.

Apart being The Beatles’ principal songwriter alongside Paul McCartney, John Lennon is also known for his words of wisdom (such as “Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.”), and, if you noticed, his signature round frame glasses. You can’t take a look at the pictures here and not agree that he totally “owned” those round-rimmed glasses and teashades, right? He’s frequently seen wearing his signature eyewear that one can’t help but wonder, how many pairs does he actually have? Well, ladies and gents, the photo above probably tells us: a lot!

Surely your interest on the famed Beatle was piqued by the awesome photo above. Don’t worry, we have some articles to feed your curiosity:
