  • John Lennon

    In Liverpool, 1957, John Lennon formed a band, the Quarrymen, and soon recruited guitarist Paul McCartney. George Harrison joined the Quarrymen in March 1958. They settled on the Beatles name in 1960 and the rest is history. During the ten years before the breakup in 1970, they became the world’s most popular and most copied pop/rock band in the history of music. Lennon embarked on a solo career producing the albums John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine with songs such as "Give Peace a Chance", "Working Class Hero" and "Imagine". After his marriage to Yoko Ono in 1969, he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to raise his infant son Sean, but re-emerged with Ono in 1980 with the new album Double Fantasy. He was murdered three weeks after its release. Lennon revealed a rebellious nature and courted controversy with his peace activism. Living Manhattan in 1971, he protested against the US invasion of Vietnam. John had stated that Elvis Presley was his main inspiration; but Presley later became an enemy who disapproved of Lennon’s anti-war activism and asked US President Richard Nixon to ban the group from entering the United States. Initial adulation and success turned into problems within the group and hostility toward the Beatles that grew, for example, in the reactionary US.

    Imagine

    John Lennon - Imagine Lyrics
    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today
    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace
    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one
    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world
    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

      A little help from my friends
      Penny Lane
      When I'm 64
      And I love her
      Here Comes the Sun
      She's Leaving Home
      I Saw Her Standing There
