In this episode, Host Diana Erickson and regular contributor Dr. Duncan Driver dig into Paul McCartney's commentary on the song, Dear Friend, from the book, The Lyrics. This episode considers the musical conversation between Lennon and McCartney at this time, in 1971, so God, How Do You Sleep, and Jealous Guy are all explored. Dear Friend is not only a beautiful song but an important one in the conversation between Lennon and McCartney in 1971—a time when their relationship was strained and spiraling. Diana and Duncan consider the context in which the song was created and what the song communicates.

This is part one of the Cleave profile on John Lennon. In this episode, Diana and Dr. Duncan Driver explore the first half of the interview. Titled "How A Beatle Lives," these exceptional interviews provide a rare glimpse into the world of the Beatles in 1966.  These contemporaneous portraits are meaningful because so much of our understanding of the Beatles has been informed by what the Beatles said later, through a post-breakup lens. And this especially applies to Lennon, who was most interested in reframing his experience. So this allows us to observe them without this lens.  In this interview, we go on an adventure with John Lennon, who is unusually open and revealing—he is also full of swagger and charm as he grandstands for Cleave.  Thanks to Dr. Duncan Driver! @@drduncd Support the show Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
