Lennon’s Letter

On getting success from songwriting :

“Being rich doesn’t change your experience in the way you think. The only difference, basically, is that you don’t have to worry about money– food — roof etc.

But all other experiences — emotions — relationships — are the same as anybodies”….

Written by John Lennon for his letter to Steve Tilston, a British folk singer who was then having fears that success could eat up his songwriting and ruin it.

The letter, arrives 34 years late.
