Tietoja tekijästä

Best known for his work with the world-renowned rock group, The Beatles, John Winston Lennon was born in Liverpool, England on October 9, 1940 to Alfred and Julia Stanley Lennon. Lennon was married twice, first to Cynthia Powell in 1962, with whom he had a child, John Julian, and later, in 1969, to näytä lisää Yoko Ono, the mother of his son Sean Taro Ono. Lennon was involved in various late 1950s British musical groups. He helped establish the Beatles in the early 1960s, teaming up with fellow Beatle Paul McCartney to write numerous bestselling popular songs including "Revolution" and "Strawberry Fields Forever." The Beatles' universal fame also resulted in their starring in such films as "Help!" and "A Hard Day's Night." When he met and married Yoko Ono in 1969, Lennon legally changed his name to John Ono Lennon. It was with Ono that he collaborated on several musical projects following the breakup of The Beatles. Lennon and Ono also gained notoriety from such public acts as being filmed and interviewed in bed, as a form of peace protest. John Lennon also had a string of post-Beatle solo music successes and he published satirical poems and stories. He moved to New York City and on December 8, 1980, he was shot to death outside his home in the Dakota building, by a deranged ex-fan, Mark David Chapman. He and Ono had just finished recording a new album "Double Fantasy." After its release, one of the songs, "Starting Over" was released as a single and rejuvenated his musical fame as his fans mourned his passing. Each year, on the anniversary of John Lennon's death, his fans throughout the world hold memorial services. Strawberry Fields, New York City's Central Park, further commemorates him.

On December 8, 1980, I had a date. I think it was my third or fourth date with this girl and I was at her place hanging out listening to music and drinking coffee Seriously, just coffee!. I don't what time it was when I left her house, but it was after midnight (EST), this I am sure of. As I normally did, I turned on the radio to WNEW- FM,, no Sirius/XM back then, a NYC rock station. They were playing a Beatles block which was not unusual. Seconds after driving away the DJ said that John Lennon had been shot and killed at The Dakota, he and Yoko's NYC home in Manhattan. 40 years later, I remember this moment as it was yesterday.

This book brings back that moment as if I was watching a high-def movie. The conversations contained herein are nothing short of historic, not just because of the subject, but because of what that subject was saying. John loved to talk. Here he opines on topics as mundane as food to deeply held beliefs about nuclear war, politics and religion. I vividly remember buying the December 1980 issue of Playboy and reading the abridged version of what was to become this book. The Playboy issue was published and delivered BEFORE John was killed. I still have that issue.

One does not need to be a fan of The Beatles or John Lennon for that matter, to enjoy this book. One needs to be curious about history, music and wants to get inside of won't of the true original minds of the 20th century. You may not agree with John's opinions and comments, but I can guarantee you you will find it hard-pressed to put this book down once you start it.
