Her most recent work is seen in 'A Lennon Pastiche' published by Pangea which is a unique multi-media iBook. She has been a guest on several radio programs and has been the subject of many reviews in which she. Once the initial outrage at the four rather effeminate, long haired young men with raucous music, provincial accents and disrespectful scouse wit had passed, it was welcome to the fab world of our loveable moptops, and no cause for concern.
At least until acid. But John Lennon often hated his Beatle suit, though he doubtless relished the fame and fortune it brought him.
The conflict between Lennon and society that had been a major feature in his life up until Beatlemania was, however, temporarily muted, channelled into oblique lyrical statements in his songs, or, more obviously, given free reign in his collections of satirical cartoons, stories and sick jokes that he released as two books, In His Own Write and Spaniard In The Works. But basically, he was tamed.
The Legacy of John Lennon's Song "Imagine"
Before Lennon had donned Beatle garb he had been Lennon the art school tearaway, Lennon the gang leader, Lennon the rock and roll lout, Lennon the man who pissed on nuns from the balcony of his Hamburg digs. He was variously admired, feared, loved, loathed and tolerated. He never bothered about acceptance beyond his peer group and his standing as a musician.

There was always the attitude that he was wonderful but, you know I think it's 'cause he's Irish. The same attitude prevails toward all non-English British. I'm supposed to write words, but I can't count. Anyway, Spike wouldn't approve.

I could go on all day about the Goons and their influence on a generation at least one , but it doesn't seem to be about the book! I keep thinking how much easier it would be to review it for a British paper. What the hell! I've never reviewed anything in my life before.
Now I know why critics are nasty. So take a chance. It was good, but radio was freer - i. Goon Show Compendiums are CD box sets, each containing a dozen or more remastered episodes, plus some great bonus features.
