Open letter to Fred Seaman
Nice Review Joe. I just read a copy of Seaman's "account" in German translation and was quite taken by this book. It's a page turner. But I totally had the same feeling that his explanation at the end seemed to lack any credibility. You can actually tell by the rhetoric used, that Seaman is, in best Poeian tradition, an unreliable narrator, who is trying to hide his own motives by sheding as little light as possible on his own doings and actions during the time he served as John Lennon's assistant.
See a Problem?
I have decided to write this open letter hoping that you will someday read it, and have the compassion and or the interest to contact me publicly or privately to discuss some of the questions I have. The first time I read it was years ago, long before this blog existed.

John Lennon was an extremely complex man who inspired millions of people to believe in the power of love and the possibility of peace on Earth. His story is truly stranger than fiction. I've included part of the book's introduction, along with our conversation. After reading this book I felt an affinity for Lennon; his life with all of its torments, joys and pains was real to me. He struggled to be better and sometimes succeeded and sometimes didn't, but he never really stopped trying. He was visibly shaken, his eyes blood shot, tears streaming down his face. There was work to be done he said.

Seaman tells Beatles News that he wants everyone to know the reports about this note are wrong. He says, "I would like to set the record straight and correct some inaccuracies contained in a Page Six item yesterday in the New York Post that wrongly suggests that as John Lennon's personal assistant in , I compromised his security by neglecting to fix a broken lock on the front door of his Dakota apartment. When John discovered that the front door was not locked on that April morning he tried to lock it himself but was unable to do so.
