Using performance and interview clips, Gary Wenstrup explores John Lennon’s solo career.

Can you imagine a world without “Imagine?” The 10-year period from the Beatles's break up in 1970 to Lennon’s tragic murder in 1980 was a fascinating period of successes and failures for the ex-Beatle. Using audio and visual content, we will explore the music from “Imagine” to “(Just Like) Starting Over,” his controversial immigration struggle, his wild “lost weekend,” and the quiet house-husband years culminating with the release of his final album Double Fantasy.

After a rewarding career in advertising sales, Gary Wenstrup retired and developed courses on the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Motown Records for the Continuing Education Department of the College of DuPage. Gary has lectured at over 100 libraries across the country. Gary’s Beatles presentation was deemed “The Best of The Best” by the Library Administrators Conference of Northern Illinois (LACONI). Gary is also a recurring guest on the popular podcast “Something About The Beatles.”
