Pressetext: DAYS THAT I’LL REMEMBER is a unique and treasurable addition to the canon of BEATLES books. It offers a new insight into LENNON and Ono as individuals, artists and lovers. It is also a gifted music journalists memoir of a seismic time in music, politics and culture. Cott is one of the few people who understands how profoundly YOKO ONO influenced JOHN LENNON.
Yoko Ono: „Jonathan Cott is somebody we all know in our circle to be a quiet genius. ‘Rolling Stone’ asked him to interview us a few times. This book is a collection of those interviews. Nothing more. Reading it, I thought ‘Wow, we weren’t bad at all.’ Because most writers wanted to sensationalize us, thinking that if they didn’t do that, it might be boring – and nobody would buy the book! So their ‘interviews’ usually came out nothing like what we were like. I have never recommended any books about John and Yoko. But this book made me choke up. I heard John in my ears and felt him in my heart. This is a good book for Lennon fans. And I.. Well, I come out as the second banana (okay, okay!) You will get an inkling of two people in love, sometimes making daring remarks, yet not forgetting to protect each other in the interviews.. In fact, this is really the way we were, folks! Have a good read. Yoko.“
