존 레논 (1940-1980)

리버풀에서 나고 자란 레논은 청소년기에 대유행한 스키플에 편승하여 그의 첫 밴드인 쿼리멘을 결성하였고 1960년에 이름을 비틀즈로 바꾸어 활동했다. 1970년 비틀즈 해체 뒤 레논은 "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band", "Imagine" 등의 음반과 'Give Peace a Chance', 'Working Class Hero', 'Imagine' 등의 곡을 발표하면서 산발적인 솔로 활동을 벌였다. 1969년 오노 요코와 결혼한 후 미들 네임에 "오노"를 추가한 그는 1975년부터 아들 숀을 돌보기 위해 음악 활동을 중단했고, 1980년 "Double Fantasy"를 발표하면서 복귀했으나 같은 해 12월 마크 채프먼이 쏜 총에 맞아 향년 40세의 나이에 사망했다. 레논의 마지막 음반이 된 "Double Fantasy"는 1982년에 열린 제24회 그래미 어워드에서 올해의 음반을 수상했다.

John Lennon (1940-1980)

Born in Liverpool, Lennon became involved in the skiffle craze as a teenager. In 1956, he formed his first band, the Quarrymen, which evolved into the Beatles in 1960. He was initially the group's de facto leader, a role gradually ceded to McCartney. Lennon was characterised for the rebellious nature and acerbic wit in his music, writing, drawings, on film and in interviews. In the mid-1960s, he had two books published: In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, both collections of nonsensical writings and line drawings. Starting with 1967's "All You Need Is Love", his lyrics espoused a pacifist message, and some of his songs were soon adopted as anthems by the anti-war movement and the larger counterculture.
