I had a chance encounter with Dan Richter (who?).

Among many exciting facets to his life, Richter was Lennon and Ono's personal assistant from around '69 to '73.

Apparently he's got a book coming out (out already in Britain?) detailing his years with the Jokos.

He specifically recalls John wanting out of the Beatles and using Yoko as a "foil."

This confirms that Yoko did not break up the Beatles.

Alas, that wasn't the question I asked him; I wanted to know if he thought Yoko kept the Beatles from ever getting back together - but then again, I didn't realize he wasn't with them past '73 or so.

 

(if you perform a search of his name, you'll find quite a guy!)

(Smart of Richter to get his book out before Joe's)

I was thinking about him only yesterday; I stumbled across his name somewhere, and thought what an interesting life he had. Wasn't he the guy in the primate costume who threw the bone at the beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey?
