...Lennon's on sale again
The MOJO John Lennon special, (that I think we may have already mentioned in these pages?) is the excellent follow-up to the Bob Dylan special, also produced by MOJO, and it is in the shops now. This 148 page silver-embossed beauty is available for Ã‚Â£4:99 in a numbered limited edition of 89,000, a tradition possibly started with The Beatles (The White Album) ironically enough, but probably not.
MOJO Lennon features: "Many previously unseen pictures from every part of John's career...Countless new insights from friends, musicians and associates...A who's who of all the important people in John's life. (Including Bowie) ...A track by track guide to every solo Lennon song...40 fans from David Bowie to Paul McCartney, Tina Turner to Liam Gallagher, celebrating their favourite Lennon songs."
The song that David chose in the 'My favourite Lennon' section was 'I Am The Walrus', and this is what he had to say about The Beatles' classic: "I Am The Walrus's 'otherness' was transporting in a way that nothing before it had even approached. A one-way ticket to ride out of Bromley."
Oompa, oompa, stick it up yer jumper!
