Coming in October 2015 is the book “Lennonology”. This promises to be ‘The’ book on the Lennon solo years. I know the guys writing this, Chip Madinger and Scott Raile, and i know the hard work they have put in. Anyone who has read Chips previous book with Mark Easter ‘Eight arms to hold you’ (a solo years compendium) will know what a master work this promises to be. I know the exacting research the guys have undertaken, with each date examined, cross checked and confirmed. I’m SO excited about this book, it’s been a long time coming, and the information it promises to offer up will have us talking for months.
Also, if anyone has any solo photos of John they own the copyright to, and that Chip could publish in his book, please message him on the books Facebook page below, or contact me
here and i’ll pass the information along.

Poor Miss Tammy has been suffering a few health issues this year, i know i haven’t been dropping blogs with my usual regularity, for that i’m sorry.
As long as i can wriggle a finger outside of my iron lung*, as long as i can strap a stick to my tongue to tap out something on the keyboard, and as long as my page turner continues to function, i will endeavor to keep plugging along.
So don’t worry if you don’t see an update for a couple of weeks every now and then, it’s a silence of necessity, not of indifference.
For many, me included, i know our little space here is like the Betty Ford clinic for Beatle fans, a place of caring and sharing (to quote Dame Edna). All will be well, it’s no big drama, i just didn’t want you to think i had tired of you, or our little Beatle friendly space.
*I don’t really have an Iron lung, the tongue stick i’ll remain a little more circumspect about
