He went on to have a very successful solo career after the Beatles disbanded in 1970. He wrote ionic songs such as "Imagine" and his best albums included Imagine and Plastic Ono Band.
In 1975, his son Sean Lennon was born, and John took a five year break from music to spend time with him. In 1980, he made a comeback with the album "Double Fantasy".
Tragically, a few weeks later, he was murdered by some bastard outside his house in New York City. Just as he and Yoko were returning home, he was shot at the entrance of his home and died when he arrived at the hospital.
We lost a legend who gave so much to the world. Music of course, but also he gave us a sense of peace, love and happiness. A man who was flawed, just like all of us.....but yet was a person everyone loved and was inspired by. We also never got a chance to see the Beatles reunite.
RIP John Lennon: 1940-1980.
Living life in peace
"He's really not that great.
John Lennon, what can be said, he's not that great, given way too much credit."
