Description

Jay Bergen was John Lennon’s lawyer in connection with several litigations in the mid-70s over the “Roots” album, a knock-off Lennon record illegally marketed by Morris Levy, the Mob-ed up Principal of Roulette Records. He got to know John on a very personal level and talks about him. In a 45-year legal career Jay also represented George Steinbrenner of the New York Yankees and Albert Grossman, manager of Bob Dylan.

My featured song is “The Rescue” from the album “The Queen’s Carnival” by my band Project Grand Slam. Spotify link.
