You Can Help With New Book on the John Lennon

Michael Krauss is a former-producer for The Mike Douglas Show and the man who had the original idea of contacting John Lennon and Yoko Ono about appearing on the show. The idea resulted in the pair spending an entire week on the show as co-hosts.

Krauss is taking his memories of their appearances, along with pictures and other memorabilia, and putting together a coffee table book. What he needs to finish the project is some input from people who remember the broadcasts or have interesting insights or memories.

He is looking to do a focus group next week in or around Greenwich, Connecticut. If you are in the area and would like to participate or have any comments that you would like to send along to the author, please write his assistant at jack.mckean@gmail.com.

Chart Watch - May 30, 2008

Our weekly recap of veteran artists on the current music charts. Chart highlights:

  • There seems to be two tracks for albums lately. They either burn bright in the first week and quickly fade away as what happened Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and George Michael, or they set in for the long hall like the Eagles and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss (who have been on the top 100 30 and 31 weeks respectively). It looks like there may be two unexpected albums that may do the latter. Frank Sinatra's Nothing But the Best collection drops just two spots from two to four and Neil Diamond's Home Before Dark sits at number ten in its third week.
  • The only major debut of the week is Donna Summer's Crayons which premiers at number seventeen on the pop album and five on the R&B album charts. That's the highest she's had an album since 1980's On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II hit number one.
  • In Britain, the big veteran artist premier is a new collection from the Osmonds which starts at number eleven. The new one from Sparks also premiers at number 54
