John Lennon: the Man, the Myth, the Music -- The Definitive Life

Few subjects cry out as much — or as often — for so-called definitive biographies than contradiction-heavy cultural deities like John Lennon. Music historian and critic Tim Riley is the latest in a long line of biographers to dig in, devoting more than 700 pages to his highly articulate read on the life and career of the most contentious and controversial member of The Beatles in Lennon: The Man, the Myth, the Music — The Definitive Life. Arriving in lockstep with the 40th anniversary of the release of Lennon's second solo album, Imagine, and what would have been Lennon's 71st birthday on Oct. 9, Riley offers up a scholarly work that's loaded with musical detail but light on new information. (Riley's previous books include Tell Me Why: A Beatles Commentary and Hard Rain: A Dylan Commentary.)
