A Few Things You Might Not Know About John Lennon

John Lennon would have turned 78 today, had he not been brutally murdered by Mark David Chapman on December 8th, 1980. In honour of his birthday, here are a few facts you might not have known about John Lennon.

John Lennon did not like the sound of his own voice and loved to double-track his records. He would often ask the band’s producer, George Martin, to cover the sound of his voice: “Can’t you smother it with tomato ketchup or something?”

One night, years after the band had split up, John had dinner with George Martin, and revealed that he’d like to re-record every Beatles song. Completely amazed, George asked him, “Even ‘Strawberry Fields’?” “Especially ‘Strawberry Fields,'” answered Lennon.

A friend once asked John Lennon what was the best lyric he ever wrote. “That’s easy,” he replied, “All you need is love.”
