His father left him at age 1 and Julia fell in love with a sailor and lived a married life without ever being wed. his aunt, Mary "Mimi" Smith tried everything to take him away from them because she thought her sister being immoral. She won and took John at age 3. His father took him at age 5 and planned to take him to New Zeland but Julia saved him. He cut off most contact with Julia until he was 15. She bought him a guitar and taught him to play. Mimi was against the guitar and it was until 1965 she finally thought the guitar offered him something. He formed a band called the Quarry Men. At a church activitie they preformed Be-Bop-A-LuLA live. Paul McCartney was in the audience and was later introduced. Within a week he was in the band.

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."
