Nice compilation May 16, 2007
This book has a lot of nice photos i've never seen before. The one i really like is in the first pages, where is a compilation of John Lennon's ID cards. It's great.
Lennon is GOD Feb 24, 2007
This is a nice book of memories of the world's best musical genius of all time.I still miss him. We lost a lot when we lost him.
What was it about John Lennon? May 1, 2006
I can't figure it out. What is it about John Lennon that makes his photographs so fascinating, fresh, and appealing all these years after he was killed? Is it because he is the only Beatle that didn't grow old? Is it because he is the image of my generation's youth? Is it because of the music he created that still resonates today? Is it simply because he was so photogenic? Is it because he was an enigma, someone we thought we knew, someone we wanted to know better? Is it all of these things, or some combination?
I don't know; but this book is a haunting joy. It features John alone, with the Quarry Men and Beatles, with his family, in shots there were staged, but often shots that gave us a hint of the real person. The book is composed of the work of several photographers that spent time with John and got to know him. The photos and brief write-ups give some insight into the real person, one that is nicer and more vulnerable than the persona that he fronted. You get a real sense of personal loss that the photographers felt after he was killed by a madman in 1981, a loss that was personal for the rest of us too - for some reason. (Again, what is it about John Lennon?)
Not a bad retrospective.
It was 25 years ago Mar 20, 2006
For anyone who loved John Lennon and who was alive when he was murdered, the memory will never leave you. Everyone will remember exactly where they were when they heard the news that was horrifying and shocking. For me, it seems like yesterday when my brother walked into my bedroom and said, "Howard Cossel just announced on Monday Night Football that John Lennon was shot." There's no way to describe the numbing agony of that moment and its aftermath. For people of a certain age, this moment marked a turning point: an end of childhood innocence and the death of an icon of a generation.
This book is an excellent one for people who weren't around in 1980 and don't have actual memories of John Lennon. For those who have long followed his life, there are no new photographs or information contained here, but it's still worth the ride. It's heavily weighted towards the Beatles years, but there is still adequate coverage of the Dakota years and the assassination itself.
To sum up: excellent for newbies, adequate for long-time Lennon lovers.
John Before And After Jan 27, 2006
John Lennon a man true to his words also standing not behind them but with them.That and his freedom in music is what made him big.Though what about his life before decaying behind fame and all the riches in the world?LIFE really captured Johns true essence from his middle class childhood to his stardom in the fab 4 to the final days of the limelight before he was murdered.That murder has came and went about 25 years ago and he will never be forgotten his motives were a strong point and LIFE helps his legacy live on.So many photos (WICH IS A TRADEMARK) with little to no information but with the supplied info you get a good idea at John's day to day life.(and the general person he was)
The point of it is to case a legend 25 years after his untimely death.Not any death but a MAsterful Musician.
