A taste of humour from a musical genuis

  • Mar 2, 1999
Rating:
+5
John Lennon was undoubtedly a very complex man, and he had a marvellous sense of humour. The spoonerisms in some tales are magnificent - some stories are real laugh out loud material. But there is still a streak of the dark and brooding Lennon, which occasionally cuts into the comic genius, and makes you look at him in a different way. This is a valuable book for anyone who seeks to understand one of the great musical influences of our time, and also one if you're looking for a good giggle!

About this book

Wiki

"It is fascinating of course to climb inside a Beatle's head to see what's going on there, but what counts is that what's going on there is really fascinating".--London Sunday Times 30 two-color line drawings.
