Besides he was a political activist. He expressed his views in songs and public speeches. He was also the founder and member of the world famous group "The Beatles“. John Winston Lennon was born on October 9, 1940 at 6:30 a.m., during a German air attack on Liverpool. The first years in the biography of John Lennon were not easy. Shortly after his birth, his parents, Julia and Alfred, divorced. When Julia Lennon found another man, her sister Mimi and her husband George Smith took care of a four-year-old John. So, the boy was brought up by his aunt and uncle. Soon Lennon’s father immigrated to New Zealand, leaving John alone in the difficult period of his life. As a result, the boy was not very obedient at school. The death of his uncle also influenced young John. When John Lennon played in a school rock band, he met Paul McCartney. They immediately found a common language, began to spent time and write songs. After numerous changes, the band consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best. The group was called «the Beatles». In 1966 Lennon met Yoko Ono. In spite of the fact that Lennon and Yoko Ono loved each other, he married Cynthia Powell. Soon they had a child. But they didn’t live together a long time. They divorced as Cynthia knew about John’s affection to Yoko. John and Yoko got married in 1969. After the wedding, they went to Amsterdam and announced that they would give a "bed interview". When journalists came, they saw that the hotel room was decorated with flowers, and John and Yoko were sitting in bed in white pajamas talking about peace. On 9 October 1975 they had a son. After that Lennon said that his musical career was over. The next 5 years he devoted himself to his son. All these years he appeared in public only once. This happened in 1975, on October 9. Lennon released the last album in 1980. The album was called "Double Fantasy" and it received positive critical acclaim. On December 8, 1980 a young man, Chapman by name, killed Lennon, making 5 shots into his back. It turned out that Mark Chapman had taken Lennon’s autograph a few hours earlier. Chapman was sentenced to life imprisonment in New York for this crime. Around the world there are various monuments, buildings and even streets named in honor of John Lennon. For example, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, John Lennon Museum, Street John Lennon, the monuments in Havana and in other cities. Even a crater on Mercury and asteroid "(4147) Lennon“ were named in honor of this famous person. John Lennon received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I believe that John Lennon is one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. He gave the world many beautiful songs and also one of the most famous rock bands - "the Beatles". Like many other fans of his work, I regret that he left this world so early. http://www.aphorisme.ru/about-authors/lennon/?q=1966 http://biographera.net/biography.php?id=384 http://www.kulichki.com/beatles/lennon1.html http://vedaem.com/source/243
