John Lennon was a highly opinionated and controversial figure with a commanding personality and quick wit. He spoke candidly about his intense, sometimes tumultuous relationship with Yoko Ono, his split with the Beatles, his squabbles with Paul McCartney, and just about everything else, baring his emotional ups and downs for all to see. By the time he granted his—and this book's—final interview, only hours before his death, he had become one of the most famous people on the planet. Lennon on Lennon is an authoritative anthology of some of Lennon's most illuminating interviews. The majority have not been previously available in print, and several of the most important have not been widely available in any format. This material paints a revealing picture of the artist in his own words and offers a window into the cultural atmosphere of the sixties and seventies.

Musicians in Their Own Words

Including newly transcribed interviews from radio and TV shows, long out-of-print interviews collected from obscure magazines, and, of course, famous interviews from the pages of major magazines and newspapers, the books in the Musicians in Their Own Words series are a dazzling showcase for the thoughts and theories and observations of some of the most beloved entertainers of our time. Ranging from simple question-and-answer sessions to multilevel descriptions of the performer and complicated conversations with preeminent journalists, they are arranged in chronological order, often amounting to a kind of autobiography. In many cases, these books bring readers as close as they can get to the artist’s own story, told in his or her own words. Whether you’re a fan of jazz giants, warmhearted troubadours, rock legends, or artists that all but defy categorization, these outstanding collections give readers an unrivaled glimpse behind the microphone.
