Episode 580: ‘John Lennon – 1980 Playlist’ with author Tim English

What music inspired John Lennon during his break from the recording business from 1975 to 1980? What bands turned him on? What songs did the former Beatle love as he began preparation for “Double Fantasy.” We got all the answers from music historian Tim English, the author of the new book “John Lennon: 1980 Playlist.”
