John Lennon is often known as the rebellious, troubled Beatle - as if his disposition was just a bit gloomier than the rest. Lennon did indeed have his struggles in life. He was raised by an austere and controlling aunt, and he barely knew his own mother and father. As a result, Lennon grew up with a serious need for love, affection, and attention. It was this desire for recognition that would drive Lennon to reach for the stars. 

Come along as we explore the life and legend of John Lennon, from his troubled childhood in Liverpool, to his superstardom with the Beatles and eventual assassination in 1980.
