The Making of John Lennon: The Untold Story Behind the Rise and Fall of the Beatles
To many people, the history of The Beatles is a fairy story. The Making of John Lennon reveals new insights into the effects of Lennon's mental health and how his personality was shaped by his childhood in Liverpool. This book provides answers to questions such as why the true source of 'Strawberry Fields' could not be revealed, why Pete Best's college connection led to his sacking from the group, and why class backgrounds were the real reason for the break-up of The Beatles. An author and teacher who has lived and worked in Liverpool almost all his life, Francis Kenny has a unique perspective on the culture and background that ultimately made John Lennon the icon he is today.
