John Lennon – He’s been quoted as saying, “we’re just a rock and roll band that got very popular…that’s all”. This was in response to the general craze and constant attention he got as the leader of the Beatles and later as a solo artist. “Very popular” is an understatement indeed. The 60’s generation grew with Lennon’s music — for he had a hold on the times. People immersed themselves in his music and hung on every lyric. A true rocker at heart, he was the heart of the greatest band ever.
Musician, songwriter, peace advocate, and rock-n-roll royalty….Lennon Lives on!
