from UK News:

Are The Beatles overrated?


A framed handwritten report card from 1950 on the wall of Mendips, John Lennon's childhood home in Liverpool, states:

"John has worked quite well this term. His oral work is very good, his written work is good, but he chatters far too much."

Lennon, born in 1940, had been living on Menlove Avenue with his Aunt Mimi and Uncle George for five years when that report was issued.

In retrospect, the remarks may have hinted at Lennon's later prolific songwriting talents.
