A musical genius, an innovator, a peace activist-John
Lennon was all these and more, and he continues to be
revered a quarter century after his shocking murder in New
York elevated him to mythic stature. Published to coincide
with the 25th anniversary of Lennon's death, this intimate
album of 150 photographs-most of which have never been
published before-offers a very personal view of the rock
legend in his last decade by someone who had astounding
access to his private life.
Bob Gruen first photographed Lennon in 1971 and became his
personal photographer and close friend shortly thereafter.
Over the course of the next nine years, right up until
Lennon was killed, Gruen would photograph him extensively.
This book assembles the most revealing of those images,
taken during Lennon's years in New York, together with
Gruen's reflections on the circumstances surrounding the
photos, including John's relationship with Yoko, how he
dealt with fame, and his experiences with fatherhood. The
result is a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at John
Lennon as a performer, a legend, and a person.
