2 Wogblog articles, 1 with some info on that John photo session, the other connections between The Beatles and Superman.

The Lennon Superman t-shirt was taken in 1966 by Alan Aldridge for the cover of 'The Penguin John Lennon' book (comprising of 'In His Own Write' & 'A Spaniard In The Works). One of the comments in the first link writes that the initial concept of the photo shoot was to dress John up as a Penguin!!!

 

A bit more searching brings up that Alan designed the covers of both volumes of The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, a few more details and some example of his work (include those involving The Beatles) can be found here.

 

Interesting info @meanmistermustard , thanks for the research. Was very surprised I had never seen the photo before. Also @Ahhh Girl thanks for the update. I think I might stick with this one for now enjoy having the color. Also John as superman with a birdcage is just funny to me.

@Necko did us all a favor and fixed my avatar. Paul's head is no longer cut off.

Yes, Paul, you are sexy and you know it.

I just arrived at the hotel for our library association conference. My room is on the 9th floor. a-hard-days-night-john-6 For 3 days, I get to say "9" when someone in the elevator asks me which button I need pushed for my floor.

Oooh... recognition.  Thanks.

 

And a new Paul is Dead clue?  I guess that means that I'm a part of the massive cover-up by creating a new avatar.

Sadly, I loved the way his head was cut off. It added to the magic. Looks wrong now. 

Great job Necko.

I just hope that my Dad doesn't find the "sexy and I know it" Paul pictures on my hard drive someday and take it out of context.  I'd have some explaining to do.

Since baseball's opening day was today, and the Philadelphia Phillies won, I decided to keep April's avatar simple: the classic "P" logo from 1973, still commonly seen all over retro jerseys and advertisements in the Delaware Valley today.

If that logo looks familiar, that's because I had the exact same logo over a grey background as a past avatar, as seen down below:

@Starr Shine? Annadog40, It seems that your screen name has been changed to "your soul" and your avatar has been changed to something not so pleasant. I'm wondering if you did that or if someone has been messing around with your account.?.? Either way, would you consider giving us John back again? We would appreciate it.

I have selected my avatar because Paul is dead. And this avatar shows him more dead then the rest of the Beatles.
