Yeah, that was a long time ago that Amazon posted that generic release date. I was hoping you had seen something more recent.

Thanks anyway.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I've just spend 7 minutes looking. All the signs appear to be pointing to that date.

Other than the generic Amazon listing, what sources say 9/1/11?

Sorry to be so picky, but I really want this thing to come out already. You would think that if a blockbuster book like this was due for release in less than 60 days, it would be plugged everywhere.

I've seen nothing on the web or anywhere else except for that Amazon thing (which I don't believe is accurate).

I'm just as shocked there has been less publicity for this. I'll see if I can find my sources again.

I have a press release from the publisher which says 1 September for the UK, but it's a few months old. I need to get back in touch with them to try to get a review copy - if I have any further info I'll let you know.

stay-on-topic a-hard-days-night-george-10 but really... john thought he was chubby.. but i like it. he really did get a lot thinner (compare Beatles For Sale cover with Sgt. Pepper cover) Everyone wanted to buy them beer and food and all that back in the early days. Also drugs probably made him thinner.

Keep on keepin' on.

He didn't mean fat. He never meant he was fat.

In 65 the reporter called him "the fat beatle". maybe he wasnt all "oh my gosh im gaining weight i need to lose it" but lost it.

im sure it made him a bit angry..  

 

-"Imagine, for a moment, a world in which the Beatles had been photographed, in every minute of their existence, by a pack of screaming Eurotrash paparazzi on mopeds – and were also subject to a shrill, constant, daily barrage of comments about how fat their arses were, and how raddled they looked, even though they were only 22. In fact, John Lennon was ONCE referred to as “the fat Beatle”, and was so distraught about it that he semi-retired, retreated to Weybridge, and spent all his time taking acid and eating only corn-flakes."  (got that from some article talking about amy winehouse i dont know why that was in there)

Anyways.. i like john '65. thats all i'm sayin.

Ah whatever i like john all the time.

Keep on keepin' on.

This is hard to answer since I love all the phases that John have been through, it shows all his complexity as a human being. But I guess that if I had to choose a Lennnon it would his teen and younger years when he was at the art college, dating Cynthia, starting a very interesting friendship with Stuart, playing in Humbug with The Beatles and composing his first  songs along with Paul...I think he was a very interesting and fascinated character at the time...very rebel, dressing as a Ted Boy, scaring but also attracting people...and also the way that Cynthia described him at  the time: he was so agreesive but also kind and romantic. It just seems interesting, I dunno. BTW, love his RubberRevolver phase too, it was his creativity peak I mean songs like Nowhere Man, In My Life, Tomorrow Never Knows, Rain and I'm Only Sleeping are absolutely masterpieces!

I think I'd have to agree with Faceo... although I might extend it to Rubber Soul.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Hello again everybody.

Whenever I think of the John I like (the Lennon persona I like) the most I don’t think of the early Beatlemania John who sometimes played the fool, or the John that was politically committed in the late ’60s/early ’70s, or the John that was a recluse and baked bread for Sean, not even the John that recorded Starting Over before dying. The lines “sitting in an English garden / waiting for the sun” always come to mind. I like to think of him sitting in his garden, looking at the grass through his glasses, composing a tune or writing lyrics in his head. It’s just my fantasy. It’s the Lennon who had stopped touring and was composing and recording masterpieces like Tomorrow Never Knows, Strawberry Fields Forever, I Am The WalrusHappiness Is A Warm Gun and Julia. Perhaps because I am not politically committed myself, or because I’m a self-effacing man who couldn’t go on tour, or because I have been a homemaker and I didn’t find it particularly rewarding (it’s a full-time, exhausting job), I like the John that was a studio musician, and produced new sounds. It used to be my dream when I was a teenager. From Revolver to the “White Album” perhaps. I know he was a selfish John, but I like the “I’m an artist and only that” attitude he had. I know: politically incorrect, insensitive. Forgive me, I’m being honest.

Oudis.
