Since October 9th was John Lennon's 79th birthday I decided to re-post his photo but improved it because I reworked it improving it.
John Lennon (Liverpool, October 9, 1940 - New York, December 8, 1980), was a British singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, activist, film actor and director. From 1962 to 1970 he was composer and singer of the Beatles musical group, of which, paired with Paul McCartney, he also composed most of the songs. With McCartney he formed one of the most successful musical partnerships in the history of twentieth century music. He is the most successful singer-songwriter in the history of British charts followed by McCartney. In 2002, in a BBC poll of the 100 most important British personalities of all time, he was ranked eighth.
After the experience with the Beatles, John Lennon was also a solo musician, author of drawings and poetic texts, and political activist and champion of pacifism. This caused him problems with the US authorities (FBI), who for a long time spied all his activities and those of his wife Yōko Ono, considering him a subversive and refusing the Green Card several times. He was assassinated by his own fan with gunshots , Mark David Chapman, on the evening of December 8, 1980 in New York.
Lennon married twice: from his first marriage with Cynthia Powell he had his son Julian, while from the second marriage with the Japanese artist Yoko Ono his son Sean was born.
