On Oct. 7, 1975, New York State Supreme Court judge Irving Kaufman reversed a deportation order for John Lennon, allowing him to legally remain in the United States. Lennon was in the spotlight throughout the first few years of the decade, not only due to his music and his status as a former Beatle, but equally for his very outspoken stance on the Vietnam War and the Nixon administration.
The current owner of John Lennon's boyhood home is looking for a larger garden, so he's putting the historic red-bricked terrace house up for auction later this month. The late Beatle's first home will go to the highest bidder on Oct. 29.
A long-lost interview with John Lennon, conducted around the time of the Beatles' 'Let It Be' album, but only recently unearthed, delves into the difficulties the band experienced during its final days in the recording studio together.
One of the things that made John Lennon’s 1971 single, ‘Imagine,’ such a powerful song was that it was sung by a man who actually believed in peace. Sure, having been in probably the most famous rock band in the history of the world -- the Beatles -- also doesn’t hurt. But ‘Imagine’ lives on as one of the greatest songs of all time not only because of its message, but also its messenger.
The four Beatles approached their solo singles the same way they approached their solo albums: as a way to declare their independence, as a forum to play around with sounds that were most likely vetoed by the others and as an excuse to exorcise their Fabness. George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr all had their share of hits and flops during the post-Beatles year
