John Lennon Net Worth $800 Million


John Winston Lennon, or simply John Lennon, was born in 1940 in Liverpool England. Lennon’s childhood was not very easy as his father was rarely at home and his mother did not have much money. As his aunt complained about John’s parents to Liverpool’s Social Services, he then lived with her. However, he still visited his mother often, and she even bought him his first guitar. When John was only 15 years old, he formed the group called “Quarrymen” which later became “The Beatles”. In 1962 they released their first single, called “Love Me Do”, which soon became very popular. One year later they released their first album and this was the time when John Lennon’s net worth really started to grow. The other members of “The Beatles” were Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. They have released studio albums, some of them are “Meet the Beatles!”, “Twist and Shout”, “Something New”, “Yesterday and Today” and many others. All these albums had a huge effect on the growth of Lennon’s net worth.

Despite the success the band gained, in 1970 they disbanded and John started his solo career. He released his first solo album, called “John Lennon/Plastic Yoko Ono Band”, which gained a lot of acclaim and praise from the critics. Later he released more albums and they of course added to John Lennon’s net worth. In addition to this, John also published three books: “In His Own Write”, “Skywriting by Word of Mouth” and “A Spaniard in the Works”, which also contributed significantly to John’s net worth. As mentioned before, John is one of the most memorable musicians of all time, and so many memorials and tributes are dedicated to him. For example, the airport in Liverpool is named “Liverpool John Lennon Airport”. What is more, there is the John Lennon Peace Monument placed in Chavasse Park.

Lastly, it can be said that John Lennon will be remembered and respected for a very long time in the future. He and other members of the band gave a lot to the music history and they will be admired by contemporary and future musicians all over the world. Despite all the controversies, John Lennon should always be remembered as an iconic personality.
