From the sweet memory of a moment by Lennon’s former lover, May Pang, to musical musings of a teenage girl from the suburbs of Southern California who is inspired by Lennon’s melodic technique, A Lennon Pastiche compiles emotional and intellectual content in a new genre of multimedia entertainment that speaks to generations of fans, readers, artists and Baby Boomers.

The enhanced eBook is smartly sectioned into Art, Words, Music and Interviews. From Mad Magazine’s master caricaturist and Reuben Award Winner, Tom Richmond, to stirring sentiments from former Beatles promoter, Sid Bernstein, there’s unique content that is filtered from fellow artists and fervent fans. Kirkus Reviews commented that the artworks of “Australian ‘emerging visual communicator’ Kaliopy have a weirdly Ralph Steadman–esque vibe that might have suited Lennon in his exile-from-Yoko period.” Songwriters and composers contributed over a dozen pieces to this tome, including an unusual offering from BBC Scotland’s Head of Technology, John Hobbs, and a poignant, touching song by Irish performer, Anthony Toner. An insightful interview from Gold Record recipient Andy Boettner of The Captain and Tennille serves as a counterpoint to the fan and crowd statements recorded during a Los Angeles performance of the Plastic Ono Band.
