NEW BOOK, ‘JOHN WINSTON ONO LENNON,’ MARKS 40 YEARS SINCE THE ICONIC BEATLE’S PASSING

Few rock artists were as fearless and uncompromising as the late/great John Lennon. Whether it be standing up for causes he believed in, promoting peace, or penning some of rock’s all-time classic tunes (while taking unexpected musical twists and turns along the way), Lennon has become one of rock’s most unforgettable figures.
