Working Class Hero

SKU: N/A Category:


Working Class Hero is the title of one of the many songs written by the legendary John Lennon and is also an extremely apt description of what this remarkable human being was all about. Lennon was an English singer, songwriter, musician and peace activist who achieved global fame as the founder of the Beatles. His song writing collaboration with Paul McCartney remains the most successful in history. He was assassinated by Mark Chapman in New York on the 8th December, 1980. Chapman remains in prison today for this vicious and unprovoked crime. On the night he shot Lennon, Chapman was found with a copy of the book, ‘Catcher in the Rye’, in which he had written “This is my statement”. Time lapse video of the painting stages here.
