Pressetext:

John Lennon’s school friend reveals how he turned Lennon onto rock ‘n’ roll – and left the future Beatle speechless Michael Hill was one of the few to have known John Lennon from the age of five and, in his new book, offers a rare insight into the childhood of the famous Beatle. The book, titled JOHN LENNON – THE BOY WHO BECAME A LEGEND offers a fresh and unique look at the formative years of Lennon, and how, in Michael’s house, he knew that rock ‘n’ roll was his destiny. Hill had purchased „Long Tall Sally“ by Little Richard on a school trip to Amsterdam and, at one of their regular lunchtime visits with John, Pete Shotton and Don Beattie to Hill’s house to listen to records, Lennon was almost lost for words. Lennon said: „Little Richard was one of the all time greats. The first time I heard him a friend of mine (Michael Hill) had been to Holland and brought back a 78 with ‚Long Tall Sally’. That’s the music that brought me from the provinces of England to the world. That’s what made me what I am … When I heard it, it was so great I couldn’t speak.“

Rod Davis, a mutual friend of John Lennon and Michael Hill, was one of the original Quarrymen, Lennon’s group that became the Beatles. Davis wrote the foreword to the book and said about it: „Unlike so many authors who have written about John, Michael Hill was actually there, sharing John’s schooldays fro the age of five until they both left Quarry Bank High School in 1957 to go their separate ways in life. Michael’s book reveals some amazing insights into hitherto unprobed corners of John Lennon’s life, and for me personally, he brings back many memories of our days at Quarry Bank School. It’s a fascinating read.“

To fully understand the life of John Lennon and how the boy became a legend, you have to read Michael Hill’s book, one of the few true eyewitnesses to the childhood of the famous Beatle.

About the Author: Michael Hill first met John Lennon at Dovedale Primary School at the age of five and accompanied him to Quarry Bank School, and was even offered a chance to join Lennon’s first group, The Quarrymen. After a life in Marine Insurance, he is happily retired in Australia.
