What if John Lennon Had Lived?

December 8th 1980

 

Murphy 'Jagger’ Salmon - ageing hippy, part-time drunk and Rolling Stones fan, is on his way home from the pub when he accidentally saves John Lennon from the assassin’s bullet.

By way of thanks, Jagger is offered a job working for the former Beatle and the two men quickly become friends.

But as the 1980s move forward, things quickly get out of control. When Lennon suffers a couple of career setbacks, he tries to win back the adulation of his fans by moving into politics.

But the 1980s version of John Lennon is a far cry from the radical left-winger of old. And much to Jagger’s horror, when Lennon quickly becomes an unstoppable force in American politics, the working-class hero is transformed into a right-wing poster boy.

There’s even talk of a Beatle in the White House.

'FAB’ is a fast-paced, rip-roaring ride through the 1980s - a decade in which greed was good and shoulder pads made sense. It was an era of uncertainty - of Cold War and nuclear weapons. 'FAB’ also pokes fun at our obsession with celebrity, whilst fondly recalling some of the unique fashions and pop culture moments that made the 1980s so unforgettable.

As John wasn't born in the US, he could never have been president, but the premise of the book is still pretty interesting.

The following people thank DrBeatle for this post:

He could be Chief of Staff.

 Sounds like a nice idea, realistic or not. I think John would be less likely to become president than Kanye West.

Or John could have become Poet Laureate of the Grand Duchy of Fenwick.

"Beatle in the White House" likely doesn't mean President (as the author who wrote this hopefully knows, it would be impossible). Either way, I'd love to read fiction about him.

Only music can save us.
