Of all the bands that have ever made an impact around the world, none have ever been as beloved as The Beatles. Their music, and message, not only crosses cultural lines, but generational lines as well.

The Beatles are arguably the most successful band of all time, with album and single sales of over one billion units.

Paul McCartney is still a successful musician, having just won a Grammy for Best Historical Album, Band on the Run (Paul McCartney Archive Collection, Deluxe Edition). Ringo Starr still tours ever summer with a different version of his All-Starr Band. A documentary about George Harrison, titled George Harrison, Living in the Material World, was recently honored at the 2012 Critics Choice Awards for Best Documentary. Over 100 of John Lennons legendary drawings will be displayed at the Hotel Crowne Towers, Copenhagen, Denmark this coming year.


It was during this time of creative blossoming for the band that John suffered his deepest loss. When he was a young boy, Johns father, Freddie Lennon, returned to the life of a seaman, spending years away from his family. Shortly after, his mother, Julia, gave John to her sister Mimi to raise, as she knew Mimi would do a better job with the child than she ever could.

Mimi raised John in a loving home and when he was an older teen, he reunited with Julia and found the carefree upbringing he longed for. Julia taught him to play the banjo and gave him a love of all things musical, while Mimi discouraged Johns musicianship and told him to find a better way to spend his time.

John later found a young lover in art college classmate, Cynthia Powell, but it was the acceptance of Julia he craved most of all. Julia was the unrequited love of Johns life and just as soon as he felt he was a part of her life again, she was killed in a horrific bus accident, just minutes from her sister Mimis home...
