You know the music. But do you know the man?

Now, with the help of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame administrator and long-time music journalist James Henke, you can come to have a better and deeper appreciation of the man who inspired a generation.

From his earliest days on Menlove Avenue in Liverpool to his days of milk and honey in Manhattan, Henke takes readers on a guided tour of one of the most beloved lives in musical history. Along the way, he introduces many of the people and places that made John Lennon the man and the musician he was.

Filled with scores of original artwork, photos and special surprises such as copies of original lyric sheets, removable concert tickets (including a ticket to The Ed Sullivan Show on August 14, 1965) and promotional fliers, and an hour-long interview CD that features a live version of the timeless classic "Imagine," the handsomely slip-cased Lennon Legend makes for a great introduction for the curious or a treasured chronicling for one of Lennon’s millions of devoted fans.
