Personal Quote:

The biggest mistake Yoko and I made in that period was allowing ourselves to become influenced by the male-macho 'serious revolutionaries', and their insane ideas about killing people to save them from capitalism and/or communism (depending on your point of view). We should have stuck to our own way of working for peace: bed-ins, billboards, etc. See more »

Trivia:

At a rally organized by the US Transport Workers Union attended by members of the IRA, Lennon issued a statement saying he was protesting "against the killing of Irish people in the civil rights movement". See more »

Trademark:

Bizarre, humorous personality and outspoken, rebellious nature See more »
