Johnny Litherland was expecting the bullet. So many brilliant musicians die young, after all. Just like his hero, John Lennon, also gunned down all those years ago. But as he lays dying, now aged 40, Johnny recounts his life as a genius musician – creating music with miraculous consequences, no less.
Set in the music and football mad city of Liverpool in the early Seventies, and paralleled with Johnny’s fateful last day, in May 2005, ‘Sixth Beatle’ is about a boy who grew up wanting to put everything right with music. Defying the tragedies that beset himself and his family, he leads an incredible life. All leading to one climactic moment in time – the day when music changed the world.
Who will like this book?
Fans of the Liverpool football scene will love this. As will avid followers of music, popular and classical. But as its also a study of a troubled mind, if psychological fiction is your thing, then is also for you. A gripping story – with the welcome occasional relief of Scouse wit and humour.
