December 8 marks the 31st anniversary of the day John Lennon died. To commemorate the occasion, I'll be participating in three events on two continents. If you'd like to attend any of them, or listen on your computer or radio, here are the information and links.
Wednesday, December 7
4:00-6:00 P.M. (local time)
Otto's Shrunken Head
538 East 14th Street
New York City
The show’s called “Rew and Who,” and I’ll be reading from my book Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon
. May Pang will also be appearing, and there’ll be musical performances by David Peel, HooP, Mary Lyn Maiscott, and others. It’s being streamed live on Internet TV
, and it’s one of my very rare New York readings.
Thursday, December 8
10:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M. (local time)
The Louie Free Radio Show
WYCL 1540 AM
The Louie Free Show
is free-form talk radio, and my December 8 appearance is a tradition that goes back to 1999. Of course I’ll be talking about Lennon and Nowhere Man
, and Louie will be playing lots of Lennon music. But he’s unpredictable, so there’s no telling where the interview will go. The show streams live
on the Internet. Check Louie’s website that morning for the exact time.
Friday, December 9, 9:00 P.M.-Midnight (local time)
Viale della Resistenza 4
I’m being beamed in via Skype for this major presentation of the recently published Italian edition of Nowhere Man: Gli ultimi giorni di John Lennon
. If you want to see it, you’ll have to go to Piombino, a picturesque Tuscan city on the Mediterranean. Rock ’n’ roll expert and author Riccardo Bertoncelli will be hosting the event, and my Italian translator and avatar, Paolo Palmieri, will be answering questions about the book and translating everything I have to say as I field questions from the audience.

Hope to see you everywhere!
