      Corn Flakes with John Lennon is more than about one man's adventures in rock and roll: It's the gripping and untold story of how popular music reshapes the way we think about the world and helps to define the modern American character.   These artists form the backbone of this engaging new memoir, “Corn Flakes With John Lennon,’’ so named because Hilburn watched Lennon eat cornflakes with cream, a dairy treat that Lennon.

Robert Hilburn's storied career as a rock critic has allowed him a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of some of the mo 5/5. In , Hilburn published a Bruce Springsteen biography as one in a series of Rolling Stone Press books. He released “Corn Flakes with John Lennon” focusing on the work and influence of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Phil Spector, Michael Jackson, U2, Kurt Cobain and N.W.A.

    Whether corn flakes were John's favorite food is debatable. In his solo years, John would often order corn flakes with cream as his breakfast when he stayed at hotels. But he often just ordered. The book centers on the writer's experiences with these various artists. He talks about hanging out with John Lennon in the studio while the former Beatle was recording Double Fantasy, and he explains how long and hard he tried to interview Bob Dylan. If you're a fan of these artists, this is worth reading.
