Marathon Lennon Interview Emerges

In 1968, a first year Keele University student got to interview John Lennon in the Surrey home of the Beatle after applying for the privilege in a fan magazine.  Brief excerpts appeared in the university newspaper, but the rest of the Lennon interview, nearly 6 hours worth, was stashed away by Maurice Hindle.  He is now working on a book about Lennon and has decided to make the full transcript available.  Segments of the extraordinary marathon include John's response to claims the Beatles had sold out, Lennon saying, 'OK so we mop-topped it to get where I am - I'm here', and, 'I'm not going to get myself crucified if I can help it, and so I have compromised.'  The full interview is being published in the New Statesman.
