stay-on-topic a-hard-days-night-george-10 but really... john thought he was chubby.. but i like it. he really did get a lot thinner (compare Beatles For Sale cover with Sgt. Pepper cover) Everyone wanted to buy them beer and food and all that back in the early days. Also drugs probably made him thinner.

Keep on keepin' on.

He didn't mean fat. He never meant he was fat.

In 65 the reporter called him "the fat beatle". maybe he wasnt all "oh my gosh im gaining weight i need to lose it" but lost it.

im sure it made him a bit angry..  

 

-"Imagine, for a moment, a world in which the Beatles had been photographed, in every minute of their existence, by a pack of screaming Eurotrash paparazzi on mopeds – and were also subject to a shrill, constant, daily barrage of comments about how fat their arses were, and how raddled they looked, even though they were only 22. In fact, John Lennon was ONCE referred to as “the fat Beatle”, and was so distraught about it that he semi-retired, retreated to Weybridge, and spent all his time taking acid and eating only corn-flakes."  (got that from some article talking about amy winehouse i dont know why that was in there)

Anyways.. i like john '65. thats all i'm sayin.

Ah whatever i like john all the time.

Keep on keepin' on.

A Hard Day's Night through HelpJohn. He seems happy. And not screwed up on drugs yet.

I think I'd have to agree with Faceo... although I might extend it to Rubber Soul.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Hello again everybody.

Whenever I think of the John I like (the Lennon persona I like) the most I don’t think of the early Beatlemania John who sometimes played the fool, or the John that was politically committed in the late ’60s/early ’70s, or the John that was a recluse and baked bread for Sean, not even the John that recorded Starting Over before dying. The lines “sitting in an English garden / waiting for the sun” always come to mind. I like to think of him sitting in his garden, looking at the grass through his glasses, composing a tune or writing lyrics in his head. It’s just my fantasy. It’s the Lennon who had stopped touring and was composing and recording masterpieces like Tomorrow Never Knows, Strawberry Fields Forever, I Am The WalrusHappiness Is A Warm Gun and Julia. Perhaps because I am not politically committed myself, or because I’m a self-effacing man who couldn’t go on tour, or because I have been a homemaker and I didn’t find it particularly rewarding (it’s a full-time, exhausting job), I like the John that was a studio musician, and produced new sounds. It used to be my dream when I was a teenager. From Revolver to the “White Album” perhaps. I know he was a selfish John, but I like the “I’m an artist and only that” attitude he had. I know: politically incorrect, insensitive. Forgive me, I’m being honest.

Oudis.
