This unique book recounts John Lennon's life after The Beatles with a fascinating and revealing track by track analysis of the stories behind each song that he wrote.
There are many books about John Lennon's life and about the music of the Beatles. What is often overlooked is the extraordinary solo work that John produced in the final decade of his life, 1970 to 1980, between the end of the Beatles and his murder in New York in December.
Lennon's life in these years was eventful and fascinating, as was the development of the music he wrote during this period. For the first time, we will be able to showcase the stories behind every one of his solo songs, alongside the lyrics, which have only been printed in song books until now.
