Summary

Summary

Glass Onion consists of exclusive, rare, and uncensored transcripts of press conferences, letters, FBI memos, interviews, and dozens of previously unpublished photos. Here are the inimitable voices and views of John, Paul, George, and Ringo, juxtaposed alongside those of Yoko Ono, Linda McCartney, Pete Best, Julian Lennon, Brian Epstein, Billy Preston, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Ravi Shankar, Denny Laine of Wings, and many others. In this volume, readers will discover an early 1960s letter from George to Stuart Sutcliff; Elvis Presley badmouthing the Beatles to President Richard Nixon; John's open letter to Paul after the rancorous Beatles' break-up; a conversation between Lennon and Samuel Beckett; Lennon's last will and testament; George Martin and Jeff Lynn discussing the Beatles' twentieth-anniversary reunion; Paul's feelings on God, John, and Linda's death in 1998; and much more.
