While John Lennon retreated into private life in 1975, he also fought a major legal battle that flew under the public radar. Mafia-connected Morris Levy, owner of Roulette Records, released Roots, an unauthorized version of a rock ’n’ roll oldies album John had been producing. Levy claimed the former Beatle had verbally agreed to market Roots via TV. The quick release of John Lennon Rock nRoll, the official album, resulted in two Levy lawsuits against John—and John’s counterclaims against Levy.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

5-Star Review from Audible.com

Review for "Lennon, The Mobster, & The Lawyer"

“…I found it extremely interesting. And you do an absolutely AMAZING job. I feel like I’m really listening to John Lennon. I’m very interested to listen to the rest of it… for me, it’s an added enjoyment of the walks through New York City, through buildings that I’ve been in, which is very interesting. Plus, there’s some legal aspects, although I was never a litigator. However, I do know of some of the law firm names that I’ve worked against. Thanks, again!”

Jude Southerland Kessler

Author, The John Lennon Series

I feel quite fortunate to have discovered the excellent new book Lennon, The Mobster, and the Lawyer by Jay Bergen… I have ordered the physical book for notetaking, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the Audible selection. Scott McKinley does a remarkable job as Lennon of the 1970s. His back-of-the-throat "r's" and his ascending inflection on the ends of sentences are so John. He doesn't overdo the Lennon accent. It is authentic... You will love this superb piece of Beatles scholarship and the reading of it as well. Bravo!

Peter Kenny

Voice Over Artist, "The Witcher" Series

"...It sounds great, a nice measured tone, the voices apparent but not intrusive and just sufficient of a hint to capture a feel of the persona... (Particularly the Lennon). Some of your Judges and friends etc, I wasn't sure it was you speaking the timbre was so different. Excellent stuff."

Audible Listener

Review for "Crime Components"

Book Review EarCandyMag.com

Review for "Lennon, The Mobster, & The Lawyer"

“…worth mentioning is the audio version of "Lennon, the Mobster & the Lawyer" narrated by Scott R. McKinley. I normally don’t listen to audio versions, but this one is highly entertaining, with McKinley's "Lennon" voice being spot-on!”

From LinkedIn

"Thank you, Scott. I would not be here if it was not for you and your exceptional training and guidance ... I appreciate you so much.”

5-Star Review from Audible.co.uk

Review for "Lennon, The Mobster, & The Lawyer"

"Scott R, McKinley's narration was clear and well-paced. He didn't try to overshadow the story, but delivered it with calm respect. He has a soft American accent which will be comfortable for British listeners and his impression of John Lennon's voice and accent was spot on. He obviously worked hard getting that right and he deserves full praise for that”.

5-Star Review from Audible.com

Review for "Lennon, The Mobster, & The Lawyer"

"Great look at Lennon’s creative process.
I found this book fascinating... Scott McKinley did a magnificent job narrating. Each character has a distinct voice... I actually thought I was listening to Mr. Lennon. Bravo to Mr. McKinley!"

About Me

I love doing voices.

 

I love the sound of a sentence carefully read, when the inflections settle in at just the right spots. I love performing in front of an audience, a class, a microphone, (even on phone calls)!

I’ve been known to throw in a dash or two of dialects for seasoning. I’ve been performing and recording books, stories, and trainings for twenty years or more. It’s been the best part of my work life. Voicework is my profession. I read record and produce audiobooks, and do voice overs for eLearning, web sites, commercials, PSAs, video games, animation.

 

You got a thing? Yeah; I can voice that.
