Picture Lennon as Closet Reagan Backer
Imagine John Lennon a conservative.
It isn't easy if you try.
Filmmaker Seth Swirsky imagines just such a scenario in his new documentary "Beatles Stories." In the documentary, Fred Seamons, Lennon's personal assistant at the time of his murder in New York City in 1980, said the former Beatle had tired of the utopian politics that had defined his image and musical output for two decades.
