One member of the Beatles were John Lennon. John was born on October 9, 1940. John was living in a poor household with his mother and father. When he turned 4, John's father moved away and he soon forgot about him. Later, his mother was having troubles in her life and couldn't have John around so he moved in with his Aunt Mimi and five other women realitives. He was raised in a family of women and had a difficult life. John was raised in Penny Lane with his mother and father which takes John to his song "Penny Lane" which describes his life in the town and how it was. John moved with Mimi to Wolton, England. There, he met Paul, George, and Ringo. Those three lived in council homes and John was a little higher class. Ringo was a city kid compared to the others. John considered himself a "fruit" to other kids.
He was a kid who always dreamed about flying. He would dream he would fly around in the sky through clouds and over mountains. This could have been one reason why he made such psychedelic songs that would make you feel light-headed and flying, or open-minded. John was a kid who loved to stay at home and write poetry and write music. He was known as the lead kid. He would go with his friends and steal apples, ride on the bumpers on big tram cars and get in all sorts of trouble but never got caught. Later, he turned into stealing candy and then went into selling cigarettes on the streets.
When John turned fifteen, he created a band with quite a few people called the Quarry Men. They played in streets and bars for free and didn't care about the money.
