The anniversary of John Lennon's death jogged my memory, reminding me of this lengthy 1970 interview. Conducted by Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone Magazine, this important conversation (listen via iTunes - Feed) was recorded shortly after The Beatles’ bitter breakup.
Running over 3 hours, it is one of Lennon’s most extensive interviews, touching not just on the breakup, but also on art and politics, drugs, Yoko, primal therapy and more. It's not always flattering, but it gives you a good feel for the man and the great artist. On a related note, you can also listen to another Wenner interview with Bono of U2: iTunes - Feed - Web Site
