Bob Dylan visits John Lennon at Tittenhurst Park

Following his appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival the previous night, Bob Dylan visited John Lennon and Yoko Ono at Tittenhurst Park, their mansion in Ascot, Berkshire.

Dylan's festival performance had been watched by Lennon, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and their wives. Afterwards he accepted an invitation to be taken to England in Apple's rented helicopter.

George Harrison was also present at Tittenhurst Park. This was the final time that Dylan met Lennon, and it was not a success.

He came over to our house with George after the Isle of Wight and when I had written Cold Turkey. I was trying to get him to record. We had just put him on piano for Cold Turkey to make a rough tape but his wife was pregnant or something and they left.
