Beatles Scholar Directs Lennon Birthday Video

JOHN LENNON is to be remembered in a special video which will be released on his 70th birthday later this week (09Oct10).
Beatles historian Martin Lewis has teamed up with the movie executives behind Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy to recreate the first recording made by Lennon, Paul MCCartney and George Harrison in 1958, In Spite Of All The Danger.
The recording was the first time the future Beatles ever entered a studio.
The new movie Lennon, Aaron Johnson, recorded the track for Nowhere Boy and the video, directed by Lewis, draws on footage from the film, which is released in America on 8 October (10).
Lewis tells WENN, "It has been an immense pleasure and honour to fashion this music video telling a capsule version of the inspiring odyssey of John Lennon's early years from such great original material."
