  5. 5. John lennon’s teen age • Lennon's mother, Julia, remarried, but visited him and Mimi regularly. She taught Lennon how to play the banjo and the piano and purchased his first guitar. Lennon was devastated when Julia was fatally struck by a car driven by an off-duty police officer in July 1958. Her death was one of the most traumatic events in his life.
  6. 6. Traveling to celebrate freedom • As a child, Lennon was a prankster and he enjoyed getting in trouble. As a boy and young adult , he enjoyed drawing grotesque figures and cripples. Lennon's school master thought that he could go to an art school for college, since he did not get good grades in school, but had artistic talent. Make a timeline of the dates and places that Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King visited together to celebrate a country’s freedom, to honor the memory of an inspirational leader, and to accept a prestigious award.
  7. 7. Forming The Beatles ! • Elvis Presley's explosion onto the rock music scene inspired a 16-year- old Lennon to create the skiffle band called the Quarry Men, named after his school. Lennon met Paul McCartney at a church fete on July 6, 1957. He soon invited McCartney to join the group, and the two eventually formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships in musical history.
  8. 8. Forming The Beatles • McCartney introduced George Harrison to Lennon the following year, and Harrison and art college buddy Stuart Sutcliffe also joined Lennon's band.

Shaken by Epstein's death, the Beatles retrenched under McCartney's leadership in the fall and filmed Magical Mystery Tour. While the film was panned by critics, the soundtrack album contained Lennon's "I Am The Walrus," the group's most cryptic work yet.
  12. 12. Solo career • Not long after the Beatles broke up, in 1970, Lennon released his debut solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, featuring a raw, minimalist sound that followed "primal-scream" therapy. He followed that project with 1971's Imagine, the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed of all Lennon's post- Beatles efforts. The title track was later named No. 3 on Rolling Stone magazine's "All- Time Best Songs" list.
  13. 13. Tragic death • In 1980, John Lennon returned to the music world with the albumDouble Fantasy, featuring the hit single "(Just Like) Starting Over." Tragically, just a few weeks after the album's release, Lennon was shot several times by a deranged fan in front of his apartment complex in New York City.
