Lennon’s final interviews

Post by IfYouLookToYourLeft »

I am very familiar with many aspects of the solo Beatles recordings but for one reason or another (probably obvious) I have never really documented Lennon’s last interviews. I never before really wanted to delve into these because personally they make me too sad, but now I WANT to hear all of Lennon’s final interviews.

Here is the thing, I have collected a bunch of interviews digitally over the years that claim they were the FINAL interview. But I’m not sure where these belong in the chronology of that day. Unfortunately I was terrible at labeling. Is there a handy resource I should look at?

Example:

Interview December 8, 1980 (BBC) 2:07’27 - I thought he made the BBC interview a few days earlier. Is there a BBC interview on Dec. 8?

Interview December 8, 1980 (?) 21’55

The Final Interview Disc 1 1:19’19
The Final Interview Disc 2 1:19’06

I just want to hear his final interviews in order. Thank you for any info you can give.

That’s a BUNCH of interviews. Very cool under the circumstances. Bizarre that he did SO MANY on that particular day. :ugeek:

So how come after all these years the Playboy tapes haven't surfaced?

His very last interview was the RKO radio interview made in his apartment the afternoon of the day he died. However Andy peebles has falsely claimed for years that his was the final interview, but that was a day or two before.
