Don't Pass this By!

For all the Lennon-Lovers out there, I recently discovered a fab-tastic web site resource containing some amazing articles about John (and the other Beatles as well).  The site is called Absolute Elsewhere, and this is a quick sample of the sort of thing to be found in the "Articles" section of the site:

* A BEATLE'S BOYHOOD - By Hunter Davies (yes, that Hunter Davies, who wrote the authorized Beatles biography in the late 60s)

* THE CHEMISTRY OF LENNON AND McCARTNEY: AN ESSAY - By Ruth McCartney (yes, that Ruth McCartney, Paul's step-sister)

* PETE BEST TALKS - an interview

* VICTOR SPINETTI: AMONG THE BEATLES - another great interview, probably my favorite piece of them all, containing an endearing little story about how each of The Beatles came to visit "Old Vic" when he was sick.  It really highlights each of their individual personalities, and it's a hilarious story!

So go check it out.  It will give you something to read after you've crawled off to sleep in the bath.
