Publisher's Summary

What was it like to be John Lennon? What was it like to be the castoff child, the clown at school, the middle-class suburban boy who pretended to be a working-class hero? How did it feel to have one of the most recognizable singing voices in the world but to dislike it so much he always wanted to disguise it? 

Being John Lennon is not about the whitewashed Prince of Peace of “Imagine” legend - because that was only a small part of him. The John Lennon depicted in this book is a much more kaleidoscopic figure, sometimes almost a collision of different characters. He was, of course, funny, often very funny. But above everything, he had attitude - his impudent style somehow personifying the aspirations of his generation to question authority. He could, and would, say the unsayable. Although there were more glamorous rock stars in rock history, even within the Beatles, it was John Lennon’s attitude that caught, and then defined, his era in the most memorable way.

great story great reader

Fist I love Jonathan Keeble he is my favorite reader. AND this story by Ray Connoly was a trip down memory lane of my entire childhood. the writing was Journalistic yet Poetic. Highly recommend his fo any one who grew up in the 60s.

interesting but not what I expected

it was worth the listening to wish it want more into John and yoko's life together but did I hear some things I've never heard before but all in all it kept my interest is hard to do
