In this original production, the real John Lennon is revealed through the insightful narration of Beatles historian Geoffrey Giuliano. Lennon was a complex man whose incredible body of work often obscured the sensitive, fragile man behind the music. Since his violent death in 1980, Lennon has become an almost fictional character; a hippie prince of peace, an idealized icon, a romanticized caricature. Along the way, the authentic John Lennon has been all but lost. Join the author in an in-depth, no-holds-barred look at the phenomenon of the Beatles and the often troubled Liverpool man behind it. Perfect for every serious fan, rock historian, critic, the media, as well as all university and school systems.
