Listen to John Lennon: The Life on your phone!
Phillip Norman, whose 1981 classic Shout! is considered the definitive biography of The Beatles, returns with John Lennon: The Life. This New York Times bestseller is an intimate look at the troubled genius who-along with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr-changed the shape and sound of popular music forever. From his early Liverpool days and heartbreaking childhood tragedies through the heady roller-coaster ride that was The Beatles and far beyond-his prolific post-"Fab Four" career, his turbulent marriage to Yoko Ono, his peace crusade, and his shocking death on the New York City streets-John Lennon: The Life is a remarkably fair and honest, utterly enthralling study of an achingly human rock legend.
