Born on 10/9/40 in Liverpool, England. Founding member of The Beatles. Formed Plastic Ono Band in 1969. Shot to death in New York City on 12/8/80. Won Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1991.

If John Lennon had only been one of the four members of the Beatles, his artistic immortality would already have been assured. The so-called "smart Beatle," he brought a penetrating intelligence and a stinging wit both to the band's music … see full wiki

A Quick Tip by BaronSamedi3

A serious contender for The Most Overrated Musician Who Ever Lived. John Lennon started out as one of those guys who pissed and moaned about his fame, but to his credit, he did manage to get over that. However, he basically wrote boy band music in the early years of The Beatles, and wrote like he was more concerned about his reputation as a pretentious artiste in their experimental years. Although he finally seemed like he was starting to write music that meant something to him by the time he died, he still only sang on a handful of songs on his most acclaimed solo album.

Unfortunately by today's standards he would have a hard time. Interesting video of how he would do on The Voice is posted to Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxwHA9kXDKw

I'd have to agree in some respects that there's a tendency to rate practically anything associated with the Beatles and Lennon and McCartney very high, and that's not always a fair critical assessment. However, it's undeniable that what the two (McCartney & Lennon) accomplished together during their time with the Beatles changed the face of music. Yes, Lennon's solo stuff had some very solid highs and even some curious lows: that's the price of magic change (going from a group to solo), but methinks you're right in pointing out that Lennon was adapting well around the time of his death.
