New York, NY, October 7, 2022 — The latest episode of Gear Club Podcast, a special episode honoring the legacy of John Lennon, is now live online at https://bit.ly/88JohnLennon.
This new episode, Gear Club Podcast #88, celebrates the post-Beatles life of Lennon, who would have turned 82 this year on October 9. After The Beatles broke up, Lennon and Yoko Ono moved to New York, where Lennon produced, recorded, and played songs that spoke to the post-60s generation as they struggled for justice and an end to war. Lennon impacted the lives of all those he came across, and that impact continues to live on.
The episode features first-hand accounts from the producers and engineers who worked most closely with Lennon as he wrote and recorded songs from “Imagine” to “Starting Over." These people include Shelly Yakus, Jack Douglas, Rod O’Brien, Ed Stasium, Jay Messina, and Greg Calbi.
