To Know John Lennon: An Intimate Portrait from His Friends, Colleagues, and Family (Paperback)
"Prewett has reinvented the rock biography through his immersive, entertaining interviews with key players...this is a triumph." -Plastic EP
What was it like to know John Lennon?
Critically-acclaimed documentary filmmaker and author Aidan Prewett draws a portrait of the genuine Lennon - the generous, charming, and wickedly funny human being behind the icon - through incisive new interviews with John's closest friends, colleagues, and family.
Personal moments are recorded in telling detail: Rehearsing with the Quarrymen in Lennon's mother's bathroom. Taking a stroll around the block at 3am in New York City. Singing old rock 'n' roll hits in the back of a limousine. And spending the night in a London train yard in 1965.
Travel with John through his school days and career with the Beatles - to his solo career and life in New York, up to his last recording session.
Featuring brand-new interviews with John's sister Julia Baird, school friend Michael Hill, Quarrymen member Rod Davis, Beatles tour manager Tony Bramwell, talk show host Dick Cavett, close friends Elliot Mintz, Ray Connolly, Tony Palmer, and many more.
This is as close as it gets to spending a few hours in the company of John Lennon.
