I totally agree. The Sgt Pepper John was like a completely different person from the White Album John. I think whatever his look was, he was always authentic to some extent.

By the way, I also really like that picture Zig. I've actually never seen it before, but I see why Cynthia (and you) would like it.

I now declare this bridge open!

When I think of John, it's kind of in quarters.


 

Alissa, thanks so much for sharing this.  It actually dove-tails into some things I've been thinking about my "relationship" with John over the years.  It's nice to know I'm not the only one who makes these kinds of mental divisions/compartmentalizations.


I'm glad as well that someone is on the same boat! Is it a hinderance though? I'm not too sure; sometimes I think it is.
Because I think of him in divisions, I often wonder, "do I even like the real him, then, if I loke one "John" better than another?" Geez! Stressful, especially regarding a hero you love so much. Ah well, he's John, and I love any John.

He is definitely a chameleon. If a person who doesn't know John Lennon looks at John in 1960 and John in 1980, like my brother, he'll not be able to make out its the same person.
