Lennon 1969

The superb pen-drawn animations of James Braithwaite illustrate this recovered five-minute audio tape interview of John Lennon in a Toronto hotel room by the then 14-year-old Beatles fanatic Jerry Levitan. Turns out it's all about peace, man. The (other) kids of Toronto preferred the Bee Gees to the Beatles? Ye gods.

Also check out this book on Lennon, which covers a lot of the same themes.
