There were a lot of good songs on that album. He was voted by Rolling Stones Magazine after his death as the 5th greatest singer of all time.
Lennon was a anti-war and civil rights activist. He was not liked by President Nixon one bit. The Nixon administration tried for four years to deport him. Finally, he green card was denied.
He didn't cut an album for years choosing to stay home with his son. When he came back with an album titled, "Double Fantasy", he was shot and killed I believe about 8 days later by a man named Chapman, whom he had just autographed that album for just a few hours earlier.
Some people liked him, others didn't. He was a different kind of guy but not so different than a lot of musicians back during those days of war. One thing is certain, he had an awesome talent.
