Great person and musician, but no more than a human being. I'd say RIP and all that shit, but we've got enough of this BS memorial crap by people who think they should've spoken at his funeral. Say what you want, he was a rich bastard. A very talented, spiritual, and memorable artist, but a rich bastard none the less.
No, don't cry over the atrocities perpetuated by your "government" every single day. Cry over a dead pop-star while the things he wanted to see changed in this world continue to be neglected.
Don't even joke about him being God if you're just exaggerating, you sound like a scene kid. Or maybe that's what you're going for? Half the people who wrote these defs probably weren't even alive when he was assassinated, and they probably think they're huge fans because they listened to Abbey Road and play "Beatles Wannabe-Retro Cash-In" - I mean, Rockband.
Mark Chapman may have been a psycho but he was right about one thing, and that's about people holding up celebrities to positions they don't deserve, and acting all sappy after the celebrity dies. If people did it for Michael Jackson when he died after all the garbage they slung at him, I don't believe one word of their so-called "respects".
John Lennon wasn't God.
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 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.
