John Lennon’s legacy

Posted by

John LennonJohn Lennon (1940 – 1980), musician, activist, poet, legend, rebel, dreamer, saint, actor, icon, artist, pacifist, lover, sinner. How can we define John Lennon? We can’t, not with one word.

Some emotions that this artist is associated with are love and anger. He clearly was an advocate for peace and love, but one can feel the anger in his messages.

In 1968, at the top of his music career with the band The Beatles, John grows distant from the band to follow his wife and a solo career. He officially splits from the band in 1970. This seems a ridiculous move at the moment, but John will go on creating beautiful musics, and his most famous masterpiece, in 1971, Imagine.

But Lennon was much more that a musician. Maybe because he also lived in very interesting times, times of revolution, the years following the Vietnam War, and the hippie movement. He was a fierce activist and advocate for anti war movement, and outspoken about many controversial contemporary issue. These political views and positions gave Lennon a hard time. The FBI and government denied John the necessary papers to visit USA. Only after few years of court battles John was able to obtain a Green Card to live in USA.

In 1980,  the 8th of December, while walking back to his New York apartment, a man shot Lennon five times, hitting his target four times, killing one of the most influential figures in the 20th century show business. But his legacy will live on for decades, as his musics did.
