Washington, April 21 (ANI): Late Beatle star John Lennon might be remembered as a highly talented rock musician today, but he was contemplated a failure during his school days.

The legendary rocker, who was shot dead in New York in 1980, failed to impress his former schoolteachers - because he liked to act as the school’s clown.

In fact, Lennons teachers predicted that he would be a failure, reports Contactmusic.

In a school report from Quarry Bank School in Liverpool, England, one teacher wrote: “Certainly on the road to failure, hopeless, rather a clown of the class and wastes other pupils’ time.”

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as “Give Peace a Chance” and Imagine.

Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit 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 a peace activist, artist, and author. (ANI)
