John Lennon was one of history's most influential musicians. This title highlights Lennon's background and his role in the formation of the groundbreaking band The Beatles. Also covered in detail are Lennon's famous war protests and his 1980 assassination. Recently released Beatles CDs, and the Cirque de Soleil masterpiece Love appealed to many young people. With Beatles songs for the Rock Band video game coming this fall, as well as remastered Beatles recordings, this title is a timely addition to any collection for middle and high schools and YA programs.
