    This book is special to me for many reasons as a fan, because it opened up the door for me between seeing John Lennon as a musician versus a person and personally, when I first read the book back in1983, John s words provided a stable, secure place for me to go as I was experiencing my parents divorce I was overjoyed that there was finally someone I could read about that thought and felt similarly to myself I never was a child in the head, and it was quite a lonely existence His words kept This book is sp...

    35 years after my first reading, as per usual, this time the book hit me completely differently All that time ago, I was a heartbroken Beatles fan still mourning the loss of a life taken too soon And I was all of 19.Back then, I could accept the somewhat spacier of John and Yoko s beliefs I came at their words as a true believer.Now, as the father of two, muchjaded by life, but still a Beatles and Lennon fan, and still mourning his loss, as well as George s, all these years later, I com 35 years after my first reading, as per usual, this time the book hit me completely differently All that time ago, I was a heartbroken Beatles fan still mourning the loss of a life taken too soon And I was all of 19.Back then, I could accept the somewhat spacier of John and Yoko s beliefs I came at their words as a true believer.Now, as the father of two, muchjaded by life, but still a Beatles and Lennon fan, and still mourning his loss, as well as George s, all these years later, I come at the book still admiring the man, admiring his convictions, his desperate search for peace, both within and without I love how each deferred to the other, finished each others sentences and, sometimes, gently disagreed with each other.Harder to accept is their views on parenthood, but that s always a perso...

    This book, along with the Plastic Ono Band album, were to me what pscyhedelia and the bigger than Jesus comment must have been to a Beatlemaniac in the 1960 s Like taking the rug out from under you at first, the realization that John Paul George Ringo exist apart from their cheeky grins and catchy tunes After the initial bruising, though, you develop a greater and truer appreciation for the men underneath the moptop in this case, John Winston Ono Lennon Plastic Ono Band has since b This book, along with the Plastic Ono Band album, were to me what pscyhedelia and the bigger than Jesus comment must have been to a Beatlemaniac in the 1960 s Like taking the rug out from under you at first, the realization that John Paul George Ringo exist apart from their cheeky grins and catchy tunes After the initial bruising, though, you develop a greater and truer appreciation for the men underneath the moptop in this case, John Winston Ono Lennon Plastic Ono Band has since become one of my favourite albums,...

    Really liked it, but of course it s an interview so it s not really about the writing Knowing it was John s last interview was sad Sheff did a great job with a difficult interview I ve read a lot of books about the Beatles and was happy to read some things I didn t know.
