I just got this fantastic mostly illustrated book from the good ol' Ohio library system and have already read through everything in a matter of hours. Paul Saltzman just happened to be on a spiritual quest of his own in the late 1960's, and he just happened to end up in the same place at the same time as the Beatles in India. His stint lasted as long as Ringo's did, but he was able to take many photographs which can largely be found here. There are many pictures that I hadn't seen before and there are a few stories that Paul (Saltzman) shared about various conversations with the boys and other experiences such as him being invited by George into his room to listen to him play the sitar. This just sheds some more light onto what is, in my opinion, the most fascinating period of the Beatles era.

That website is where I found my Avatar.

"Paul Saltzman’s photos of all of us in India, in 1968, are absolutely beautiful. The photo of John, finger to his ear, is the best picture I’ve ever seen of John Lennon from the Beatles’ era—it speaks volumes."

– Cynthia Lennon

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Yeah, the first time I saw that one in the book I thought, 'hey there's Zig.' If I ever get bored of the USS Chicka Ferdy I might have to change my avatar to the Paul equivalent of yours just because there are so many great pictures of him there.
