Four times the Lennon in Q

By | Published on Tuesday 28 September 2010

I often wonder whether this sort of thing actually works. Will people really buy the next edition of Q magazine four times because it is being made available with four different covers?

Or is it just a PR stunt to make people like me write about the fact the music monthly will be celebrating what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday with a selection of articles and exclusive photos in their next issue, out this week?

If it’s the latter, then I guess it’s job done. The different covers follow Lennon through his career from aspiring star in Hamburg to celebrity thinker in New York.
