In long-lost interview, Lennon dishes on meeting Trudeau

A long article about the upcoming auction sale of Howard Smith’s taped interview with Lennon.

Of interest are Lennon’s statements on stage performances and myth making.

It`s a bit unclear to me whether the audio files that are sold online by Smith people contain the same exact content. More research for me to do. LOL.

“I’m not against performing, but performing as a Beatle is like such a myth and an aura about it that they expect Jesus, God and Buddha,” Lennon said. “It’s an anticlimax to the buildup of the myth, the myth is bigger than … three guitarists and a drummer. The myth is bigger than the reality (and) I’m inclined to leave them with the myth.”
