The freak known as Yoko Ono will be writing a book on her life with John Lennon.  Apparently she will be writing about her relationship with John and to clear up the belief that she was behind the breakup of The Beatles.  She says “I would love to do it.  I just have to find the time.  It will be my next book, which will be written in the next five years.”

A book about Jimi Hendrix is coming out titled “Ultimate Hendrix” and will cover the years between his discharge from the army in 1963 and his tragic early death in 1970.  Complete will all-new interviews with bandmates and studio staff, candid conversations transcribed directly from the raw tapes and rarely seen photos of Hendrix in the studio.  The book is written by John McDermott who also wrote 3 other books on Hendrix.  Sounds good to me.
