New Beatles Book – John Lennon: Life Is What Happens

Beatles fans have something new to look forward to with John M. Borack’s book, John Lennon: Life Is What Happens, a retrospective of the singer’s career.

The book celebrates the life and times of one of the most influential musicians in pop music history. Mr. Lennon was a singer, songwriter, artist, social activist, husband and father, who inspired a generation—and continues to do so today 30 years after his death on December 8, 1980.

According to press materials, the read “features rare images of Mr. Lennon along with a myriad of pop-culture memorabilia from the height of Beatlemania into the late 1970s and the Plastic Ono Band. Chronicling his musical career, the book includes hundreds of classic photographs, dozens of quotes by and about Lennon and personal reminiscences from fans and celebrities recalling Lennon’s impact on their lives.”

    Back in the 60s when the Dansette was all the rage, the Beatles were not everybody’s cup of tea.
    I was offered the Beatles by Brian Epstein for a ‘dance’ for £250. Alas, the local halls including the local Drill Hall would NOT hire me a venue for ‘that sort of thing’.
    So I had to go for Freddie Starr and the Midniters for £40, then the church hall pulled the plug completely.
    But I did manage to book the Stones for £50, the contract for which sold for a few bob in 2007.
    All this and many more 60s tales are in a book ‘Tear My Heart’ that covers 60s music.
    I finished up as Beau Brummell’s manservant Montague Jeffers on ready Steady Go!
