John Lennon is a legendary singer, songwriter, and musician best known for being a member of the Beatles. He is widely recognised as the man who formed the Beatles in 1960, and for being one of the two main creative forces of the group. Together with fellow bandmate Paul McCartney, he was in one of the most (if not THE most) successful songwriting partnerships in history. As a Beatle in the 1960s, Lennon was credited for being the main writer of classics such as Come Together, Strawberry Fields Forever, I am the Walrus, and Across the Universe.

As a solo artiste after the breakup of the Beatles in 1970, Lennon wrote hits such as Christmas favourite Happy Xmas (War Is Over), (Just Like) Starting Over, and perhaps the most famous one of all, Imagine.

On July 2, 1964, Lennon and the Beatles landed in Singapore for a 55-minute stopover at Paya Lebar Airport, while on their way back to London after a tour of Australia and New Zealand. Lennon was asleep on the plane throughout the stopover, and Singaporean fans never got to see him then. Unfortunately, that was the only time Lennon ever came to Singapore as a Beatle.
