Perhaps they aren’t really satisfied with it, or think it’s incomplete of sorts. For example Virgil’s “Aeneid” almost got the same treatment due to him feeling it’s incomplete and not on par with the Greek epics until Augustus himself had to personally ask for it’s publication. So could be personal reasons.

I can identify the line-up, Chas Newby (bass), Colin Hanton (drums), Len Garry (seated), Rod Davis (guitar), but who is the guitarist in the red polo top?

@Tony Japanese It’s Chrisse Usenius. He’s a musician from Finland. 

They did a brilliant set. I hope to see them live one day.

Been trying to grasp my thoughts towards death but never was able to explain it until I heard the end of episode 17 of the revised edition of ‘The Beatles Anthology revisited’ when John said

“I’m looking forward to death, you know, death is a rebirth and I’m looking forward to it as much as I suppose I looked forward to being born. It may have a few physical pains as you pass over, maybe not. I’m looking forward to it. I don’t want to be killed, I’m looking forward to a natural death.”

Very much spot on.

“I’m not afraid of death because I don’t believe in it. It’s just getting out of one car, and into another.”

People who know their history know how prescient this quote was. There’s no way John could have known the future but he had amazing insight. My own attitude to death is that I can’t escape it. It’s something all living things share. The only thing I can control is how I live. Whatever happens after death has always been the case.

For me, the guy(s) on Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig In The Sky” sum it up nicely.

“I’m not frightened of dying. Why should I be? We all gotta go sometime.”

I’m more frightened of dying a slow and/or painful death than death itself. I would prefer to go quickly and as painlessly as possible, and preferably none too soon, for I am fond of living.

A perfect quote choice for an instrumental song. John’s a part of the great gig right now, hanging and jamming with Stu and Chuck Berry
