Music fans paid tribute to rock legend John Lennon this weekend. The former Beatle would have turned 71 years old Sunday.

A crowd gathered in the morning at Lennon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Some of them performed songs by the late singer and also took part in a potluck breakfast and cake cutting ceremony.

Lennon is responsible for 25 no. 1 singles on the U.S. Hot 100 chart, and his album sales have topped 14 million in the U.S. alone.
