John Lennon (1940 - 1980)

 "John Winston Lennon was best known as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist for The Beatles. His creative career also included the roles of solo musician, political activist, artist, actor and author. As half of the legendary Lennon-McCartney songwriting team, he heavily influenced the development of rock music, leading it towards more serious and political messages. He is recognized as one of the musical icons of the century, and his songs (such as "Imagine" and "Strawberry Fields Forever") are frequently ranked among the best songs of the 20th century."

The Beatles ( John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. ) are widely accepted as the most influential and successful popular music group of the Rock and roll era. No other artists can claim, with the arguable exception of Elvis Presley, to have achieved the Beatles' combination of popular success, critical acclaim, and broad cultural influence.
