John Lennon was a musical pioneer.  Along with his bandmates, he swept the UK into "Beatlemania" before taking America by storm.  He introduced millions of people to the new sound and attitude of rock 'n' roll.
 
Mainly raised by his aunt, Lennon was rebellious and an outside-the-box thinker from a young age.  He was known as a troublemaker and class clown with a talent for writing funny stories and drawing humorous doodles.  Lennon also had a love for music, playing the harmonica, piano, guitar, and more.  By the time he was 15, he started his first band, the Quarrymen.  Over the next few years, he met Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, and they became the Beatles in 1960.
 
Lennon and McCartney would quickly become one of the most successful songwriting teams in history, penning about 180 songs together – the majority of the Beatles catalog.  By 1963, Beatlemania had consumed the UK, and a year later, the Beatles invaded America.  The Beatles are widely credited with revolutinizing the sound and style of rock 'n' roll music and pushing the boundaries of musical creativity.
 
After leaving the Beatles in 1969, Lennon embarked on a successful solo career.  He penned anti-war anthems such as "Imagine" that led the Nixon administration to attempt to deport him.  Lennon spent his final years enjoying a quiet family life before he was killed.
 
Lennon was part of the most successful band in history.  Over the course of his 23-year career, he had 25 number one singles in the US.  Fittingly, Lennon received a number of honors, including his posthumous induction into the Songwriters and Rock 'n' Roll Halls of Fame.  Today, he is remembered as a rock icon and one of the gretest singers of all time.
