John Lennon, 1980: The Last Days in the Life 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.
'The Last Days in the Life undoubtedly comes from a place of love... to give a nuanced portrait of a sparkly, selfish but vulnerable man' Uncut
'Womack's accretion of facts builds an organic narrative momentum... as Lennon returns to the recording studio, you can't help feel joy for how content and centered he finally seems' Boston Globe
'Beatle scholar's insightful study of that final year.' Mojo, 4*
