John Lennon 1980

What to expect

The story of the legendary musician’s incredible last year.

John Lennon 1980 traces the powerful, life-affirming story of the former Beatle’s remarkable comeback after five years of self-imposed retirement. Lennon’s final pivotal year would climax in several moments of creative triumph as he rediscovered his artistic self in dramatic fashion. With the bravura release of the Double Fantasy album with wife Yoko Ono, he was poised and ready for an even brighter future only to be wrenched from the world by an assassin’s bullets. John Lennon 1980 isn’t about how the gifted songwriter died; but rather, about how he lived.

Critics Review

  • “Womack [employs] exquisite economy of language coupled with the storyteller’s gift…for the time that we spend immersed in this excellent work, we are John’s companion and his friend. Truly, music aficionados will not feel short-changed.”
