Gave Me a Lot of Good Info and Memories

I guess I'm in the minority here because I rate it a little better than 4 stars. That is because there is a lot of detailled information about the Beatles early years that I didn't know or forgot about. The author seems to give a lot of details about those times and less detail from the time after the touring started. There is virtually nothing about the post-Beatle era but a lot of info on Marc David Chapman.

The author has a silly premise that John Lennon made a pact with the Devil sometime in 1960 which gave him 20 years of huge success before the murder 20 years later. He compares Lennon to the Faust story and draws on all the clues that pointed to Paul's death as really being harbingers of what was to befall Lennon and because of Lennon's anti-religion stance and fascination with death.

I enjoyed most of the book for all the info and wish there was more post-Beatle detail. I knew very little about Chapman because that time was very painful for me to focus on and I tried to put it behind. The author seemed to have done a lot of research into Chapman's life. The point is Chapman did what he did because he thought killing a celebrity would make him remembered, plain and simple and not the whole treatise presented by the author.

What did you think of this review?

I certainly hope that no one seriously believes this bullshit. Lennon was never anti-God, far from it in fact. And of course Paul has yet to be dead, except perhaps commercially.
