Front Cover

"Jonn Lennon's life in the years between 1970 and his tragically young death in 1980 were eventful and fascinating. He moved from stardom in the world's biggest pop group, to global peace campaigner and figurehead for radical causes. He left England for a new life in the USA with Yoko Ono. There was a bizarre interlude of 18 months - his famous 'lost weekend' - when John ran off with Yoko's secretary May Pang and descended into alcoholism. Reunited with Yoko, he abandoned publi life and retired to his New York apartment to raise their son and live the life of a recluse. In 1980 he re-emerged with a new album, but the plan to resume his career was cruelly curtailed on that fateful night outside the Dakota Building. This book recounts John's life after The Beatles in a fascinating and revealing track-by-track analysis of the stories behind each song that he wrote."--Back cover.
