So sorry folks for the lack of regular updates since the New Year, but things have been busy around here. We have been playing with redesigning the blog and making some changes to things around here. Please bear with me as I make some changes, and bring in some really new and exciting content!
We are looking at more ways of making the blog even more active for 2009 , and should unveil a great redesign in the coming week(s). For now, though updates will be a bit spotty.
For now though it looks like a new John Lennon title is collecting some interviews from the late-great legend. We look forward to hearing more details about it in the near future. It looks promising. Any new Lennon titles is always promising.
Here’s what we’ve read.
New Book Collects John Lennon’s Essential Interviews
JOHN LENNON: The Essential Interviews collects the pop music legend’s most candid and inspirational interactions with the media. Available for advanced order and immediate delivery from Rock Reader Books here: (http://www.lulu.com/content/5363419), this exciting new book – which is also now available for download – will be formally released March 3, 2009 through traditional and online book retailers.
Beginning in the sensational heyday of the Beatles, The Essential Interviews traces Lennon’s personal and creative evolution over the span of the next fifteen years up until his tragic murder in December 1980. Allowing the iconic musician to tell his own story, JOHN LENNON: The Essential Interviews finds the genius behind most of the Beatles best songs, delivering the memorable, newsworthy sentiments that captivated the media and record buying public alike.
Compiled by pop music journalist John D. Luerssen specifically for Rock Reader Books,
this project offers direct perspective from Lennon on how the following legendary sentiments took shape:
“Part of me suspects that I’m a loser, and the other part of me thinks I’m God Almighty.”
“Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.”
“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.”
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
Thanks for John Luerssen for sending us the link. Hopefully we will be able to review this book in the near future.
