The Top Ten

1 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Chapman was so obsesses with Beatles especially john lennon. The autograph he got and the lsd creeping over him. In a frenzy he shot.. Even missing his aim.. What a tragic moment in our lives... Rip john lennon

Sucha pity how could a simple man ruin John's life. He had lot of more music to show us, and more to give to the whole world. We'll never forget him.

And all he wanted was world peace :(
