John Lennon, Born October 9, 1940
Singer-songwriter John Lennon, who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles, is born in Liverpool England, October 9, 1940.
In August 1965 Walt Disney met with Brian Epstein – manager of The Beatles – to discuss the possibility of the popular Fab Four performing songs for the upcoming film The Jungle Book. Later Lennon supposedly nixed the idea and Walt ended up using semi-soundalikes to voice what wound up being vultures in The Jungle Book film.
In late 1973 Lennon visited Disneyland with his son Julian, girl friend May, ex-wife Cynthia (mother of Julian), and friends Mal Evans (once a Beatles roadie) and Jesse Ed Davis. Lennon, who had not seen Julian in 4 years, thought the Anaheim park was a good place to reconnect with his 9-year-old son.
On December 29, 1974 Lennon, while staying at Disney’s Polynesian Resort, signed the paperwork that officially broke up The Beatles. Although the group hadn’t worked
together since 1970, it took another 4 years for the proper legal paperwork to be agreed upon. He was the last Beatle to sign the documents thus ending The Beatles at Walt Disney World.
