As a groundbreaking rock star and activist, John Lennon (1940-1980) always pushed the envelope.  His reputation as a troublemaker who challenged authority dated back to his chidhood.
 
Lennon rarely saw his father, a sea merchant who was often away for extended periods.  And his mother struggled to raise him on her own, so he spent much of his childhood living with his aunt Mimi.  Because of this, Lennon rarely acknowledged the authority of his friends' parents, and was known for his rebellious streak.
 
At school, Lennon was the class clown and "on the road to failure," according to one teacher.  But he did enjoy art and produced his own school magazine, The Daily Howl.  Outside of school, he expanded his world view through stamp collecting.
 
Lennon had a love of music from an early age adn started his first band, the Quarrymen, when he was 15.  By the time he was 18, he wrote his first song, "Hello Little Girl."  Despite his dreams of becoming a musician, Lennon went to art school, but was kicked out before his final year.  This allowed him to focus more on the band, which became the Beatles in 1960.
 
In just a few short years, the Beatles would take the world by storm and become the most commercially successful band in history.
