One thought on “Lennon Remembers: The Full Rolling Stone Interviews from 1970

  1. Todd N

    I finished a book early last night and wasn t sleepy, so I read this book again probably my 10th time reading it.It s a mass paperback edition of the 1970 Jann Wenner Rolling Stone interviews with John and Yoko It s John Lennon in full post Beatles, de mythologization mode The first line in the interview If I could be a fuckin fisherman, I would, you know In the interview John is alternately funny, self pitying, angry, bitter, coy, self contradictory, interesting, and forgetful Just like I am du [...]

  2. Whitney (First Impressions Reviews)

    Lennon Remembers is classic Lennon It s not a sit back and put your feet up read It s a jolt on your nerves like bad, bad espresso People with weak stomachs should close the window before reading You might just feel like jumping out Yoko Ono, from the ForewordI hardly ever read forewords, I want to get to the meat of the story and feel those numeral numbered pages get in the way But, before starting Lennon Remembers, the 1970 Rolling Stone Interview conducted by Jann Wenner, I did Yoko Ono s for [...]

  3. Kris Larson

    DON T read this if you love the cheeky, Hard Day s Night vision of the Beatles It s an interesting snapshot of Lennon s mind on the day s he was being interviewed, and because he s so adamant in everything he says, you might come away feeling he really always hated the other Beatles and so on But I think he was just a really young guy who didn t yet know how to handle a breakup very well, any kind of breakup It s an interesting read, but don t get into it if you want your fuzzy Beatles feelings [...]

  4. Peacegal

    Yeowch Caustic and biting, this is certainly not the Beatles America embraced in 1964 Reading Lennon s harsh opinions of Paul McCartney can be wince inducing Lots of self aggrandizing as well, from both Yoko and John.Even so, I ll take this bad mouthing, ego tripping Lennon interview over the middle aged soft and squishy one present in All We Are Saying The Last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono At least this one had his wry sense of humor intact, and had me laughing out loud on seve [...]

  5. James

    Lennon has been essentially sainted since he got shot This book is great because it demonstrates what an arrogant asshole he could be He talks all kinds of shit about Jagger, McCartney, and every other 60s British rock star Worth a read for Beatles fans and Beatles haters.

  6. Driscoll(Joe & Jerry)

    Seems as though there was a lot that Winston O Boogie didn t quite rememberd then there was Yoko.

  7. tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE

    review of Lennon Remembers Rolling Stone Interview by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE February 6, 2008After decades of not much caring about The Beatles John Lennon whatnot, I recently made a movie called Backwards Masking In Rocks that references The Beatles Lennon Ono, etc I discovered that I really DO like The Beatles In my movie, Lennon et al are The Crystals backwards masking allegations are made against ROCKS in general rather than rock music Now, opening this bk again for the 1st time in a lon [...]

  8. Carlos Hugo Winckler Godinho

    Que pessoa confusa que era o Lennon, n o Me parece que ele estava constantemente tentando chamar a aten o Talvez tenha sido uma fase, como o livro da irm dele d a entender cito porque li ao mesmo tempo , mas a imagem que se tem dele nessa entrevista n o das melhores.

  9. Danielle Dubois

    Entrevue compl tement d cousue Lennon qui ne se rappelle pas ses disques, le journaliste qui ne sait pas o il va et Yoko qui ajoute son grain de sel Personne ne fait rien de bon sauf lui Lennon , sauf Yoko et lui.

  10. Tim Armitage

    A comprehensive account of Lennon s time with the Beatles and his solo years The frank discussion, does a lot to demystify what he terms the myth of the group It soon becomes clear that while Yoko may have contributed to the group s breakup, the constant pressure from factors within and outside the band exposed the fractured nature of the group Interestingly, he argues that the record company changed the group so much that he no longer recognised it and that Paul s desire to take over from Brian [...]

  11. Michael Anderson

    I ve read pieces of these interviews over the years but never all of it at once Lennon said a lot of things, sometimes contradicting himself, but is always mesmerizing It was hard to put this down.

  12. Ryan Williams

    Two conclusions.1 Lennon needed a kick up the arse.2 Jann Wenner needed to learn the difference between barmy and balmy.

  13. D.J. Kazmierczak

    John was flat out pissed off when he gave this interview Very insightful into what his state of mind was in late 1970.

  14. Farah

    These interviews offer an interesting perspective from John Lennon in 1970, still fresh from the break up of The Beatles, in love with Yoko, immersed in political issues, etc It s still worth checking out, even so many years later.

  15. Abel

    God is a concept by which we measure our pain Lennon Remembers is a non fiction book base on Rolling Stone interviews of John Lennon from the 1970s I honestly loved this book even though its non fiction In the beginning John Lennon states that the Beatles had become the new god or Jesus John Lennon talks about how he doesn t believe in god , trying to say he doesn t believe in the Beatles John Lennon took many bad things and got away with it He admits having prostitutes , so he had a lot of affa [...]

  16. Ray

    I admit that I have not looked at this book since 1971 I was 15 and ready for the journey that any of the Beatles were ready to take their fans on And I definitely wised up in the process realizing I wasted hard earned money on albums like Unfinished Music No.2 The Wedding Album and Electronic Sound But hey, I was the first of my peer group to then understand performance art During the time these interviews happened and for subsequent years, John made NYC his home They often appeared on local FM [...]

  17. Marti Frank

    I would recommend this book to any fan of The Beatles or Lennon This book shows a raw side of John that we don t see in most interviews This book is for anyone from young adult to elderly because of it quality content of hard hitting questions Wenner asks questions to cause the reader to relate to Lennon This book is great for anyone who just really wants to know how The Beatles music was produced and what happened behind the scenes This book shows the reader how John felt about the major Beatl [...]

  18. Frederick

    I read an edition published in the early seventies I don t know how the current edition differs from that one, but I gather the current one is complete and that the one I read was a little complete than editions published between then and the time of the current publication.These are interviews John Lennon and Yoko Ono gave together to Jann Wenner, the founder of ROLLING STONE, shortly after the Beatles broke up in 1970 It is valuable as a record of John Lennon s state of mind in 1970 You simul [...]

  19. Aaron Dome

    Would you take it all back If I could be a fuckin fisherman I would Thus begins this frank chronicle of the life and times of the founding member of the world s most famous and arguably best rock group A cursing and often abrasive Lennon gives his first hand account of the Beatles from their formation until 1970, complete with his raps on art, philosophy, and the brutal business of rock n roll The original book an heavily edited transcript of 1970 interviews with Rolling Stone s Jann Wenner pain [...]

  20. Ramin

    A bunch of interviews with John Lennon, usually with Yoko Ono, in 1970 It was right after John Lennon Plastic Ono Band and before Imagine And it was right after the Beatles breakup, so there was much discussion of that In John s view, they broke up because he and Paul were egomaniacs going in different directions, not because of Yoko And apparently everybody were assholes to Yoko, except for Ringo and his wife John talked about the musical influences on them, including Chuck Berry and Bob Dylan, [...]

  21. Paolo

    E l intervista integrale del 1970 per Rolling Stone fatta da Jann S Wanner a John Lennon, con la presenza di Yoko Ono Pi che un intervista ragionata, studiata nei modi e nei tempi, sembra una discussione appassionata, pungente, irriverente Solo dopo poche pagine sembra di stare l , allo stesso tavolo con il giornalista, con Yoko Ono, un po defilata, e John Lennon, che si agita, ride, sentenzia, canticchia I Beatles si sono sciolti da poco e molte sono le domande sul gruppo, sui caratteri, sui ra [...]

  22. Marianne

    I was only 10 years old during the Summer of Love in 1968, so I can t say I was ever one of the screaming girl fans of the Beatles Nevertheless, I d grown up with a fondness for the Lovely Lads From Liverpool and their music Having said that, these collected interviews were quite shocking to me when I read them in 1976 Here is a frank and poignant look at what life was really like on the magical mystery tour That they managed to maintain a fairly squeaky clean image is remarkable given their hug [...]

  23. Atticus Wittenmeier

    This interview between Jann S Wenner, Yoko, and John is one of the most interesting thing I ve ever read It was a great way to put time then into perspective of time now, it was a really cool way to turn back time as well I especially enjoyed hearing the stories that John and Yoko expressed deep enthusiasm for and in general I loved hearing Yoko s third party commentary, it made the whole thing very dimensional Every word that I read was incredibly intriguing and all in all a very interesting bo [...]

  24. Apolla

    For a pacifist, John Lennon sure was angry brilliant and acerbic, sharp and intelligent, these are not interviews which make particularly easy or pleasurable reading, but they are interesting and shed a certain light on the character of Lennon in the days immediately after the band broke up.But Rolling Stone still sucks.

  25. Chris Dean

    I m interested in expressing myself.at will mean something to people in any country, in any language, and at any time in history And rock just happens to be the media which I was born into, that s all As I finish this on the 35th anniversary of his death, his impact is still felt This interview was very insightful as to what a complex individual Lennon was.

  26. Elyssa

    These interviews offer an interesting perspective from John Lennon in 1970, still fresh from the break up of The Beatles, in love with Yoko, immersed in political issues, etc It s still worth checking out, even so many years later.

  27. JT

    Sure, John could be a jerk at times, but I still love him I didn t like how Yoko would butt in and try to correct what John said I am of a fan of the cheeky, A Hard Day s Night and HELP John, but it s a great read nonetheless.

  28. Peter

    One of the great interviews with any composer performer THis is where the genius and Japanese fisherman quotes come from spends a great deal of time on the breakup business dealing of the Beatles A must for any Beatles fan.
