John Lennon Interview


JW. You were really angry with Paul…

JL. No, I wasn’t angry, I was just ‘shit!’ He’s a good PR man is Paul and about the best in the world probably, he really does a job. I wasn’t angry in that way, we were all hurt that he didn’t tell us what he was going to do but I think he claims he didn’t mean that to happen but that’s bullshit! He called me in the afternoon and said I’m doing what you and Yoko are doing last year. And I said good, you know. Because the time last year they were all looking at us as if we were strange trying to make a life together and doing other things than being fab, fat nits. So he rang me up that day and said I’m leading a group too he said. I said ‘good.’ It seemed a little strange because he was threatening us this time, although it was a year later, and he had wanted to keep the Beatles most. And then the midnight papers came out and I was cursing because I hadn’t done it!

JW. Would you record with them again?

JL. Not a chance, I wouldn’t record with anyone again. I mean I would record with Yoko but I’m not going to record with another egomaniac. There’s only room for one on an album nowadays. There’s no point, there’s point at all, there was a reason to do it one time but there’s no reason to do it anymore.

JW. Would you take it all back, being a Beatle?

JL. If I could be a fisherman I would. If I had the capabilities of being something other than what I am, I would. It’s no fun being an artist, it’s torture.

YO. There’s nobody like him, and especially now there’s nobody really speaking out so it’s almost like a very special phenomenon. In his driven way he was really telling it like it was. And John laid it out for all of us in a way. You know he just put a little truth serum in there. You know, we can experience it but we don’t have to die for it, whereas he did.

JW. He was one of the great men of the twentieth century and I’m very sad he’s gone. One of the greatest people I ever met you know and it’s painful for me to listen to his music from that era, genius as it is, beautiful as it is. It’s hard because you miss him so much.

JL. People like me are aware of their genes. At 8, 9, 10 I always thought why has nobody discovered me in school. Can’t they see that I’m cleverer than anybody in this school, that the teachers are stupid too? I didn’t become aware of it in that Beatle thing, I got fuckin’ lost in that like being at high school or something. I used to my art teacher, ‘you’ve thrown my fuckin’ poetry out and you’ll regret it when I’m famous, and she threw the bastard out! I never forgave her for not treating me like a fuckin’ genius or whatever. I wasn’t just another child, I was different, I was always different. Why didn’t anybody notice?

JL. Moment by moment, that’s how we’re living, cherishing each day and dreading it too you know. It might be the last you never know, I might get run over by a car. I’m really beginning to cherish it when I’m cherishing it. Yes…
