The Making of John Lennon focusses on the question of what might have caused the downfall of one of the most confident and brilliant musicians of the past century. Kenny emphasises three main influences which helped shape Lennon's creative process and stayed with him throughout his life. How did strong roots in his hometown of Liverpool, his troubled mental health, and a turbulent family background all form the man himself? How did his troubles and ultimate downfall affect his relationship with the other Beatles, his family, the press and the public? What really made the legend, John Lennon?

About the Author:

FRANCIS KENNY was born in Liverpool, giving him a uniquely comprehensive understanding of the city that John Lennon grew up in. He met his wife in The Cavern and has been immersed in Liverpool and Beatles culture all his life. He has undergraduate degrees in Economics and in Social Policy and an MA from Liverpool University. There, his dissertation focused upon Urban Renewal and Art. He often lectures on the topics of arts, culture and music.

Review:

Francis Kenny, author of this new counter-biography of John Lennon, is a lifelong Liverpool resident and makes some great observations about where John fit in - socially, politically, economically - in Liverpool. And his answer is that John didn't really fit in at all. Of the Beatles, he was the least typically Liverpudlian of the group. - The Glass Onion Beatles Journal
