biography

Born Liverpool, England, 1940; died New York, 1980.

The solo career of John Lennon effectively began in May 1968. By then, with SGT PEPPER behind them, THE BEATLES seemed to be running out of steam, and the death of their manager, Brian Epstein, in August 1967, had added to an air of confused disillusion.

Lennon, in retrospect, had already had his turning point when, in 1966, he attended an exhibition by the Japanese conceptualist YOKO ONO. The artist cropped up in his life again, over the next year, and on May 19, 1968, with his wife Cynthia away, John invited Yoko over to his Surrey mansion. They slept and recorded together, producing a work entitled UNFINISHED MUSIC NO. 1: TWO VIRGINS. It was the start of a twenty-year relationship, and the birth of John Lennon, ex-Beatle.
