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

Imagine
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
