Her death was one of the most traumatic events in John's life and one of the factors that cemented his friendship with Mc Cartney, who had lost his own mother to breast cancer in 1956.

Lennon named his first-born son Julian after his mother, and later wrote the song, "Julia".

Lennon often revealed his rebellious nature and acerbic wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night (1964), in books such as "In His Own Write", and in press conferences and interviews.

He channelled his fame and penchant for controversy into his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980), was a 20th-century Academy Award and Grammy Award-winning English songwriter, singer, instrumentalist, graphic artist, author and political activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founders of The Beatles.

Lennon and Paul Mc Cartney shared a partnership for writing songs.In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place.In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Lennon number 38 on their list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles as the best band.Throughout the rest of his childhood and adolescence, Lennon lived with his 'Auntie Mimi' and her husband George Smith (who had no children of their own) in a middle class area of Liverpool at 'Mendips' (251 Menlove Avenue).Family friends described Mimi as stubborn, impatient, and unforgiving, but she also had a sense of humour.She also played Elvis Presley's records to John, and would dance around her kitchen with him.
