Lennon belts out a note during the rehearsal for a TV special at Wembley Studios in April 1964. Looking especially boyish in his glasses and sweater vest, Lennon’s image is paired with notes, written from his younger self’s perspective, which express his dream of becoming a famous musician when he grows up. The piece is particularly poignant when considering how famous Lennon went on to become, and how it later led to his murder.
