John Lennon: Bore, Fool or Saint?
Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 20 December 1969
THEY SAY John Lennon is insane, a fool, and a bore. They call him an embarrassment, a joke, and a man too interested in his own publicity. They talk about white bags, long hair, posing nude, pirate ships, recording in a hotel room, staying in bed for a week, more money than sense, insulting the Queen, hurting his Aunt Mimi and being dead by 40.
