John Lennon remembered by a friend -- and himself

Two new looks at John Lennon just in time for his 75th birthday celebration. The BBC's show "Verbatim" has a special show featuring John talking in his own words. The soundscape incorporates rarely heard archive interviews, poetry readings, studio outtakes and alternative recordings of some of his most acclaimed compositions. It's taken from conversations recorded between 1962 and 1980.

And on Beatles Examiner, we have published a world exclusive excerpt from Dave Morrell's new book “1974 The Promotion Man New York City” in which he writes about smoking a joint and listening to the Beatles song "How Do You Do It" with Lennon. (John played the song for them.)
