In a new book, a school friend of John Lennon reveals new insights into the future Beatle’s formative years and how he triggered Lennon’s musical career

In a revealing and engrossing new book, ‘John Lennon: The Boy Who Became a Legend’, Michael Hill, a close friend of Lennon’s during 12 mischief-filled school years, offers a perceptive and amusing first-hand analysis of the formative years of the future Beatle and of the events that shaped his character.

With little interest in music until his mid-teens, Lennon was a real nowhere boy with every prospect of becoming a real nowhere man, until the influence of frequent record playing sessions at Hill’s house and the impact one school lunchtime of first hearing Little Richard’s dynamic recording of ‘Long Tall Sally’ motivated him to take up playing and writing music himself.

To fully understand the life of John Lennon and how the boy became a legend, you have to read Michael Hill’s book.
