Here are some interesting facts about him.:
John Lennon’s aunt and parental guardian, Mimi Smith, told him as a teenager, “The guitar is all very well, John, but you’ll never make a living at it.”
When he was about to turn 21, Lennon had serious doubts about ever making a career as a musician because he felt too old to become famous.
Lennon’s hero was Sioux Chief Sitting Bull. That’s why when he played cowboys and Indians when he was little, he always chose to be an indian.
Paul McCartney taught Lennon how to play chords on six-string guitar. This because when John Lennon started playing guitar, he tuned it like a four-string banjo.

While living in America, the FBI, under J. Edgar Hoover, studied all of Lennon’s lyrics and analyzed every one of his television appearances to find a legal reason to deport him.
