JOHN LENNON ASSORTED BUTTON SET - ONE INCH
About John Lennon
Music and the world as we know it would be a dramatically different if not for the tireless contributions of one John Winston Lennon.
Worn down by constant touring and the trappings of fame, a disenchanted Lennon escaped to the studio to avoid the deafening shrieks of fans and an endless barrage of criticism.
It was there he honed his craft and further distanced himself from the subdued nature of his earlier work, creating songs epic in both composition and scope.
His renewed passion for song writing would ultimately lead to the creation of The Plastic Ono Band in 1969 and the beginning of the end for the Beatles.
Lennon released his debut solo album the following year, which at the time was praised by critics for its poignant introspection and social relevancy.
However, it was his 1971 classic Imagine and its accompanying song of the same name that remains forever engrained in the hearts and minds of people everywhere.
Four shots fired from the gun of a deranged fan ended Lennonís life on December 8, 1980.
