A life and a career tragically cut short by an assassin. It is so ironic and sad, that a man who worked so hard for peace was killed violently. John Lennon was truly a classic. He was the 'rebel' influence in the Beatles, and later sought world peace through his solo music, with songs like Imagine and Give Peace a Chance. He was somewhat reclusive during the 70's, although he did put out some good music during this time. One has to wonder what more he could have accomplished?
