The Beatles' quips are read by millions as they are interviewed by one prestigious magazine after another. What do you think? Wink 

One certain event struck me----John said that the "I need a fix" section contained in Happiness Is A Warm Gun (bang, bang, shoot, shoot) is not a heroin innuendo. And yet after jubilantly swallowing page after page of Beatles Anthology, there is an image on the page opposite that comment which contains contradicting evidence. A clipping of the lyrics from the liner notes of the White Album shows brackets drawn beside the "heroin" section that reads, in Beatle handwriting: the junkie.

I know that Joe's read Anthology---and doubtlessly others have. Anyone have anything on this? 

Kenny Everett: Are you composing this straight out of your head? John: This is ad nauseum---straight from the mouth that bit me. Paul: Oo-hoo, it's nice to be here!

What page is it?

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

I looked this up last night. Sorry, didn't check the page number.

The three main parts of the songs are marked, in turn, Dirty old man, The Junkie and The gunman. I'm pretty sure it's John's handwriting.

Everyone knows that he was singing about heroin. He denied it, but I don't think anyone - himself included - believed it.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
