Book description
John Lennon is one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century and a Liverpool lad who became known in every corner of the globe. This book goes back to Lennons roots, unveiling the story of his early life in Liverpool. Bill Harry was there at the beginning, vowing with John to make Liverpool famous John as a musician, Bill as a writer. Both achieved their vow, John in a pectacular way which no one could have imagined as one of the greatest figures in popular music history while Bill coined the phrase Mersey Beat and launched the newspaper of that name. In this book, the magical music landscape of Liverpool through John s early life is explored from his birthplace to his childhood homes, to his relationships with his friends and lovers, from Aunt Mimi to Cynthia Lennon, from his mother Julia to Paul McCartney, his popular haunts such as Ye Cracke, Gambier Terrace and the Blue Angel club, to the early gigs from the Casbah to the Cavern. Liverpool was such a major influence on John that wherever he travelled it was always with him and he was to pay tribute to his favourite city in songs such as In My Life and Strawberry Fields Forever. Join us in this journey through John's early life.
