JOHN LENNON - MUSIC TO YOUR EARS ATC SWAP

I joined the "Music to Your Ears - ATC Swap" hosted by Myrnabs at the Stamp-Shack. I love paper crafting and this has been one of my favorite swaps so far! Thanks for hosting Myrna...
My swap was on JOHN LENNON, this is what it says on the back of the ATC:
Born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940 in Liverpool, was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained global fame as a founding member of The Beatles.
In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as peace activist, artist, and author.
Lennon had two sons: Julian, with his first wife Cynthia, and Sean, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976-1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. Lennon was shot four times in the back in the entrance hallway of the Dakota by Mark David Chapman. Lennon had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for Chapman earlier that same night.
In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number 1.
