John Lennon, Rock Musician / Songwriter
Born: 9 October 1940
Birthplace: Liverpool, England
Died: 8 December 1980 (shot to death)
Best Known As: One of The Beatles
As half of The Beatles, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were one of the most successful songwriting teams of the century. Together they wrote dozens of hit tunes, ranging from "Help!" and "Ticket to Ride" to "Penny Lane" and "Let It Be." Lennon's romance with Yoko Ono was a major influence on his post-Beatles career, and he collaborated with her on everything from the modern pop hymn "Imagine" to avant-garde noise and poetry. The Beatles broke up in 1970, and Lennon followed with a solo career marked by uneven recordings and public pleas for world peace. After a reclusive five years as a family man, Lennon released an album with Yoko in 1980, Double Fantasy. As their new song "Just Like Starting Over" was reaching the top of the charts, Lennon was shot to death outside his New York home by Mark David Chapman, a schizophrenic fan.
Lennon published two illustrated books of poetry and wit in the mid-1960s, In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works... His son Julian Lennon is also a singer and musician... Lennon's political positions gained him the enmity of J. Edgar Hoover's F. B. I. and the U.S. State Department, and researchers are still trying to get files on Lennon made public.

The frontman of the Beatles, brilliant song writer and musical Jesus. Decieved by the succubus Yoko Ono. He is bigger than Jesus and greater than you. Bow down.
John Lennon is greater than you. Go die.
I would like to quote jockstrap...someone who posted earlier.
"He's really not that great.
John Lennon, what can be said, he's not that great, given way too much credit."
And I would like to respond with FUCK YOU!!!! LENNON RULES!!!

John Lennon was not a god. He was an artist. He made it clear to his listeners that he was not god and anyone who believed in worship was stupid for doing so. He was a very talented musician, song writer, singer, producer...ect. He inspired peace and love; however, John was a very violent man in real life. He left his first wife Cynthia Powell for Yoko Ono and many people believe she was the reason the beatles broke up. This is stupid. Although Yoko added tension and may have been a contributer to the break up..nothing lasts forever. It was definately time for John and the rest of the group to move on with their lives. John loved Yoko more than anything and if you can't respect that than you obviously don't respect him.
John Lennon was pretty chill.
God himself. Okay, maybe not. Anyway, he was the leader of The Beatles, wrote some of the best songs ever made, and was taken away from us too soon.

he IS the greatest man to ever live, second only to Jesus. His ideas of peace, love, and harmony still stand firm...but the word's too fucking ignorant to go with it. As Immortal Technique would say, Lennon truly lived "Revolutionarily."
