Early Life of John Lennon

John Lennon was born in 1940 in Liverpool. Lennon’s childhood was rather tragic: his father was absent and his mother died in a car accident when he was 16 years old. He didn’t even get to live with his mom, because it was his aunt who took custody of him.

The beginning of his career

Instead of paying attention in school, Lennon paid more attention to music. At the time John played in a band called “The Quarrymen”. One day when the band was playing a gig, one of the bandmates decided to introduce Lennon to his friend Paul McCartney.

First hit

In 1960 the band had changed its name to “The Beatles” and in 1962 released their first single “Love Me Do”.

Their first performances took place in Hamburg, Germany. It was then that Brian Epstein saw the bands potential and became their manager.

The Jesus controversy

In 1966 when getting interviewed, John Lennon famously said that The Beatles were more popular than Jesus. It caused a huge backlash from certain conservative states of the U.S., where the band’s records, photos and other memorabilia were burned.

Beds-In For Peace

John Lennon himself was actively against the Vietnam War so he and his new wife Yoko Ono together held “Beds-In For Peace”. During that time he also wrote a song called “Give Peace A Chance” which, just like “All You Need Is Love”, became extremely popular.

Solo-career

After leaving the band, Lennon didn’t stop making music. In his last years he wrote some of his iconic songs like “Imagine” that carried the same message of peace and love.

After releasing multiple solo albums, John decided to “retire” from public life and spend more time with his family.
