LENNONYC is a wonderful film exploring John’s life in New York during the 1970’s. The movie features never before heard studio recordings from Double Fantasy, previously unseen home recordings, concert outtakes, and highlights from my own historic 1974 interview with John. The story is told through John’s own words and recent on-screen interviews with many of the people he worked and lived with during that time. I’m honored to be part of this group of eyewitnesses, including Elton John, producer Jack Douglas, Yoko Ono, May Pang, photographer Bob Gruen and many more.
On October 7th (2010) I participated in a special screening and panel discussion at the Paley Center for Media along with the film’s director Michael Epstein, executive producer Susan Lacy and the legendary Dick Cavett.
Two nights later – October 9th – I was the Master of Ceremonies for an exclusive free Central Park screening before thousands of fans, in honor of what would have been John’s 70th birthday.
The video clip above is from ABC’s Good Morning America.
LENNONYC premiered on PBS stations around the country in November 2010 and is also available on DVD.
