If you love John Lennon that’s good, but how well do you really know him? This is what you might or might not know about this guy. Here you can read about his life and learn a thing or two about him.
Born October 9, 1940 his full name was John Winston Ono Lennon. You know him as the singer and the song writer that he was later in his life. Many know him as the guy who founded the band the Beatles. Many have loved this music and we can see why. The music stole the hearts of many during the 20th century.
Many don’t know where he was from. Lennon was born and raised in Liverpool and found to be a man who loved music as a teenager. He was in bands through out his teenage years. His first band was known as The Quarrymen. You now know them as the Beatles, but they didn’t go by this until 1960. It was then, that the true talent showed and everyone wanted a piece of them.
There were many who were very appalled when the beatles broke up. There were many who loved their music. Today, it’s legendary. However, just because the band broke up, that didn’t shake Lennon. He went out to create music on his own. Many songs were created, but somehow, there were some who said that his solo music just wasn’t the same.
There are some people who wouldn’t listen to his music. The reason for this is that Lennon had his own style. The style that we are referring to is that he became cynical and voiced this in his music. When he moved to New York in 1971, many listened to his criticisms of the Vietnam War. However, Lennon wasn’t the only one to do this.
Lennon was known not to care about what others thought about his music. His music actually got quite a ruckus from people. One of those people during the time who was so upset was the President at the time. This president was Richard Nixon who actually tried to have him deported due to his music.
There were many issues at the time that he had to tend to. However, many wondered where he went until he returned in 1980. It wasn’t long after that when he passed away. John Lennon died December 8, 1980 when he was murdered. Many think it had to do with his music in which he was killed.
In 1987 many still loved his music. They loved it so much that they wanted to honor him. It was during that year that he was inducted into Music’s Hall of Fame. We can see why as well as many of us still jam to the music that he put out. His music still lives on as they put out the Beatle’s best hits and copies are still sold as the music still plays on.
