John Lennon: Musician with a Message

Library Binding (Raintree Oct. 1, 2002)
As a young boy, John Lennon loved to cause mischief at school. As a teenager, he failed exams, learned to play guitar, and started a rock band. As an international star, his groundbreaking music, unconventional lifestyle, and protests for peace astounded the world. John found fame as lead singer of the most popular band in history, the Beatles. Between 1963 and 1970, John and his wife, Yoko Ono, were using their fame to promote world peace. Their progressive protests grabbed headlines, and their songs called for peace and freedom. In 1980, John was murdered outside his home in New York. Around the globe, millions of people mourned the death of an extraordinary musician. This book tells the story of a man whose music challenged people to hope for a better world.
