Returning SATB guest favorite
Ray Connolly (journalist, Beatles insider, screenwriter) penned
what remains the finest Lennon bio in print, Being John
Lennon: A Restless Life. On this, his 82nd birthday, we
celebrate John's life and Ray's as well as we discuss a wide array
of topics with someone who knew John well: a journalist friend and
confidant. In this far-reaching conversation, we touch on topics
including the Get Back film - drug use - Michael
X and James Hanratty - the abominable behavior of Phil Spector's
entourage - skiffle - Mimi and Yoko - the "Working Class
Hero"project - the Lennon-McCartney creative partnership - Ray's
interactions with the Lennons during the last hours of John's life
- and more.
Hosted by award-winning author Robert Rodriguez, Something About The Beatles is an intelligent but entertaining examination of The Beatles' music and career. Smart, funny and surprising - just like the Fab Four.
