John Lennon (Part 2): "The phony must die said the catcher in the rye."

Listen Here; Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | Radio Public | Google Play | Spotify | RSS

John Lennon was a walking contradiction: a violent pacifist and a creative genius marred by creative inconsistency. He was gunned down just as he was getting his groove back by Mark David Chapman, a self-loathing narcissist obsessed with his contradictory hero, John Lennon, Lennon’s musical rival, Todd Rundgren and J.D. Salinger’s angsty, Holden Caulfield from The Catcher In The Rye. Hear how all of these factors and more contributed to the musical icon’s senseless murder in a two part Disgraceland episode. To hear part 1 of John Lennon in Disgraceland entitled, "John Lennon, I'm going to kill you, you phony bastard" click here.

Disgraceland is a new true crime podcast about musicians getting away with murder and behaving very badly.

Jerry Lee Lewis’ 5th wife? Dead. Sam Cooke 3AM in a seedy motel? Dead. Sid and Nancy? Dead. Why? Because musicians are crazy. Because insane things happen to them. Because we love them. And because we let them get away with it.

Murder! Suicide! Religious Cults! Tupac! Beck! The Stones sleeping with the first lady — wait… what?

If you love true crime and you love music get ready to love Disgraceland.
