John Lennon

(9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980)

Became a member of The Quarrymen which then evolved into The Beatles in 1960. Lennon showed wit not just in music but also in film, in his drawings, writings and interviews. Married Yoko Ono in 1969, they had a son names Sean.

Mark David Chapman shot John Lennon back December 8, 1980 in front of the latter’s apartment in The Dakota. There wasn’t a funeral for John Lennon, he was cremated. Yoko Ono scattered his ashes in NY’s Central Park. The Strawberry Fields memorial was later created in that same place.As of 2011, it has been noted that Chapman has been denied parole for 6 times.

One of his quotes that I so like:

“As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.” – John Lennon
