An English musician who was a founding member of The Beatles. One of the greatest songwriters and musicians of all time, he collaborated with Paul McCartney to form the most successful songwriting duo of all time. Also the rhythm guitarist of the band, some of his greatest Beatles songs where he sang lead vocal include "A Day In the Life", "Nowhere Man", "I Am the Walrus", "Come Together", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "All You Need Is Love", "I'm a Loser, and "A Hard Day's Night".

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.
Imagine all the people

Living life in peace

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."
