I'm just wondering if anyone's read "Lennon in America" by Geoffrey Guiliano. I saw it at the bookstore the other day, started reading it, and was totally appalled. The author claims that John "may have been" gay, that he slept with Linda McCartney, and well...all it basically talked about was John's sexual fantasies. I mean, I know John was no saint, but this guy made him sound like a freak! Just wondering if I'm the only one that hated this book.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


Awwww, I was so cute a year ago.

I havem't read Lennon in America, but I did read 'Blackbird'. At first I thought it was good, but then I realized that 75% of all the stories were at least dramatized if not totally made up. He made up soooooooooooo much stuff about Linda being like this jealous bitch to Denny Laine's wife, that Linda thought she was hitting on Paul all the time. And all this stuff about Paul and Linda hoarding money, and how ironic it was that Wings was so big, but the members only got paid like 35 pounds a week. He also made Linda out as an all-around mean bitch. He made Paul and Linda out as marijuana fiends, but said Linda was a much bigger one then Paul. It was disgusting.

Hello, I'm new here, but have been visiting BeatleLinks for ages as it is such a good site! I have not read the Lennon in America book and don't plan to after hearing all the bad press about it. I do have a book called "Beatles A Celebration" by the same author and it does have some interesting rare pictures that I haven't seen before, but I'm not tempted to read such a negative interpretation of John, who I think was a really great person/songwriter...I perfer to keep reading Ray Coleman's biography which I think was really well done

Okay, I'm closing this topic. I don't like GG either, I've made that patently clear in the past, but honestly, we have nothing to gain from a topic with endless bashing...this isn't a reflection on Marissa's last post, either, 'cause I agree with her, AND with all the other less-than-charitable comments! The man is slime.

All the same...I've been watching this topic closely for the past few days to see if it would degenerate, and I'm afraid it will at this point, so I'm nipping it in the bud.

Adios, GG!

Hmm, well I have to respect your opinion, LuvLennon, but I must say that there as many folks who disagree with Coleman's whitewashed versions of Lennon's biography as there are those who find Giuliano's writings "painted black".

I wouldn't dream of letting others' opinions or beliefs influence my own research into any subject. After all, I don't live in Communist Russia or Gestapo-run Germany, and I have the great freedom of reading whatsoever I desire and formulating my own opinions.

That said, I'm going to echo Susan's decision to close this topic. If anyone has something new to say (and we mean new, not rehashed bashisms), feel free to open up a new topic, but all this going around in circles is driving Nipper crazy.
