A few more thoughts about Cynthia Lennon

leave a comment »


We learned yesterday about the passing of Cynthia Lennon, or John’s first wife.   This is fascinating from The New York Times obituary:

“Cynthia Powell was born in Blackpool, Lancashire, on Sept. 10, 1939. She was married four times, most recently to Noel Charles, who died in 2013.

Julian, who is also a singer and songwriter, is her only immediate survivor.

On the last page of “John,” Ms. Lennon wrote that if she had had another chance, she would have lived differently.

“If I’d known as a teenager what falling for John Lennon would lead to,” she said, “I would have turned ’round right then and walked away.”

Indeed, her life with John was very complicated.
