John Winston Lennon was born on Oct 9 1940 in Liverpool England during a bombing over the town. His Mother was Julia and his Father was Alfred. 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. Paul in vited George Harrison another week later. The changed their name to the Silver Bewatles a play on the Crickets. After many behavior problems after school, Mimi sent him to art college where he met his first love: Cynthia Powell. He also met a great friend: Stu Sutcliffe. John asked him to join the band as a bass player. The band went to hamburg germany first in 1960. While they were there, they took their first drugs: Pep Pills. They were also introduced to Astrid who fell in love with Stu. They returned to england. They started working for the cavern club wich was their signature place to play.

I wrote 2 definitions on John Lennon one full of facts and one of opinions

I started at the begining and ended at the end of his life

The greatest musician ever to live (Besides the guys of pink floyd). He wrote the most beautiful songs ever, Imagine.

He married the love of his life, Yoko Ono, who many people claim helped break up The Beatles. Its semi true. But c'mon, it was his true love, you gotta do what you want, when you find the right person, you marry them.

Unfortunatly, in December of 1980, he was shot and killed by some fucker, who the surviving members of the Beatles never talk about, because they dont want him to gain that status that the person who shot JFK did. If you look up both of their names, your a fag, and should go rot in hell.
John lennon is the greatest musical genius, and may god rest his soul.

When someone walks in on you while you're jacking off and you turn to them, say "I'm your biggest fan," and then shoot your wad on their chest.
Last night, Sally walked in my room to get a piece of paper, and much to her chagrin, I gave her a big ole John Lennon. High five!

It's true

Imagine all the people. . .
That's all he was, just one of the people. never to be raised, or praised. An icon to those without concept of self worth, an idea for followers and those of shallow mind, indeed, exactly like all celebrity.
Presidents, CEOs, Television actors, Movie "stars" etc.
John Lennon

To be the first one of a group to fail, die, sell out, move on, etc.
Used interchangeably with Yoko Ono; to forsake your friends, band, etc. for a woman.
We'd agreed to all stay friends after graduation, but then Eddie got a job in Tulsa and John Lennoned on us. At least he wasn't like Jim. That dude totally Yoko Ono'd with that skank Sherry.

Someone we have been forced to call great and talented because he got popped off by some loony and now we are forced to swallow what a great guy he apparently was and how he was the creative force of the Beatles when in reality he was a washed-out hypocrite who only ever succeeded because he rided on Paul McCartney's talents. My friend says he is the human form of love and peace. Yes that's why he abandoned his friends while remaining bitter, twisted and childish about the whole Beatle business. Whole lotta love and peace there...err not. Once you've heard one Lennon song, you've heard them all.
We need to stop thinking John Lennon is a "legend" and accept him for what he really was - a stupid arsehole.

A self-righteous asshole who spewed childish bubble gum music and foul blasphemy that his drug-addled fans thought was groovy. Also, Mr. Peace, Love and Understanding left his wife and child for Yoko Ono whom Beatles devotees blame for the fact that the band had run its course.

If you listen to Lennon's ditty "Imagine", you'll find that by the time he's done imagining, he has imagined that nothing exists other than himself. That's the John Lennon philosophy in a nutshell. Of course I am sorry he was murdered, but his failure to rise on the third day was a fitting end.
John Lennon proclaimed himself and his band as "bigger than Jesus", and also predicted that "Christianity will end". Christianity is still here, Lennon is dead as a doornail.
