The complete and uncensored 1970 Rolling Stone interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Initially published on the twentieth anniversary of his death, this candid book reveals new information on the breakup of the Beatles, fellow musicians such as Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, Lennon's attitudes towards revolution and drugs, and his relationship with Yoko Ono. Featuring new introductions by Ono and Wenner, and containing substantial material never before seen in print, Lennon Remembers presents a compelling portrait of a complex musical genius at the height of his career. Sometimes anguished and angry, often tender and poignant, these interviews are indispensable to understanding who John Lennon was and why his legacy continues to resonate today.

Review: Lennon Remembers: The Full Rolling Stone Interviews from 1970

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

Fascinating for the time, eventually proved to be somewhat less reliable than you'd think...Also, Lennon did it only after extracting a promise from Wenner that he wouldn't publish it as a book. Oh well. :-) Read full review

User Review  - Susanne - Goodreads

Well, I don't know, I forget... fuck! Lennon sounds like a spoilt child. I really do like his music, but closed this book with a feeling of disppointment. I had expected a bit more substance to what he had to say. Read full review
