Hey Guys,

Since we're on the subject of upcoming John Lennon books, there's also one that I've written that's due for release right around the same time as Ken's.

It's titled "John Lennon: Life is What Happens," and it's a look at Lennon's life and music through words and photos (many of them rare pics of Beatles/Lennon memorabilia). There are also quotes about Lennon's influence from folks such as Dave Smalley, the Turtles' Howard Kaylan, Earl Slick and Tony Levin (both of whom played on the "Double Fantasy" record) - and Ken Sharp!

The book is being published by Krause Publications and is available for pre-order now on Amazon.com.


Ken's book looks fantastic, by the way - congrats to you, my friend!

Thanks, and I hope everyone is doing well.
