Summary
The author, a music historian and journalist writes a biography that challenges many popular assumptions about Lennon's life, from his widely misunderstood 'Working Class Hero' origins to his epic romance with Yoko Ono. Also critic for NPR he takes us onthe remarkable journey that brought a Liverpool art student from a disastrous childhood to the highest realms of fame. He portrays Lennon's rise from Hamburg's red light district to Britain's Royal Variety Show; from the charmed naèivetâe of "Love Me Do"to the soaring ambivalence of "Don't Let Me Down"; from his shotgun marriage to Cynthia Powell in 1962 to his epic media romance with Yoko Ono. This narrative draws on numerous new and exclusive interviews with Lennon's friends, enemies, confidantes, andassociates. He explores Lennon in all of his contradictions: the British art student who universalized an American style, the anarchic rock 'n' roller with the moral spine, the anti-jazz snob who posed naked with his avant-garde lover, and the misogynistwho became a househusband. What emerges is the enormous, seductive, and confounding personality that made Lennon a cultural touchstone.--From publisher description
