"Working recently with legendary John Lennon producer Jack Douglas on the 30th anniversary of John's death, it was an amazing opportunity to see Jack being interviewed by various US documentary channels and eavesdrop on the stories. Jack described how it was to work with John, and the candid snippets of their private life revealed a very spiritual but internally angry man who was far more in line with his audience than the media wanted anyone to believe.
"Lennon’s sense of confusion, anger, frustration, yet tireless optimism had more in common with society in general than a pretty chorus and some scathing rhymes. I'll always be in love with his tunes and his lyrics, but I'll remember him forever because he spoke to me like an equal.”
