John Lennon

John Lennon was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine", song which later become an anthem for anti-war movements.

The song "Give Peace a Chance" was sung by over half a million demonstrators in Washington, D.C. at the second Vietnam Moratorium Day, on 15 October 1969.

Lennon left England for New York, and released the "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" single in December of 1971.
To advertise the single, Lennon and Yoko Ono paid for a billboard in Times Square, New York, which read, "WAR IS OVER, if you want it". In 1972, Lennon released "Woman Is the Nigger of the World".
Many radio stations refused to broadcast the song.

In 1972, the Richard Nixon Administration wanted to silence Lennon by trying to have him deported from the U.S. On 23 March 1973, Lennon was ordered to leave the U.S. within 60 days, while Ono was granted permanent residence.
In response, Lennon and Ono held a press conference at the New York American Bar Association on 1 April 1973 to announce the formation of the conceptual state of "Nutopia"; a place with "no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people", and all of its inhabitants would be ambassadors.

Lennon was murdered in New York City on 8 December 1980.

After Lennon’s murder, historian Jon Wiener filed a Freedom of Information request for FBI files on Lennon.
The FBI admitted it had 281 pages in its files on Lennon but refused to release most of them, claiming they were national security documents.

Shortly before his death, Lennon was interviewed by Playboy magazine, where he blatantly asserted, "We must always remember to thank the CIA and the Army for LSD. They invented LSD to control people".
