Interesting, and in-depth, look at the relationship between John and Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner. Extracted from a new biography of Wenner by Joe Hagan. Wenner has unfollowed Hagan on Instagram.  

This is the biography that will also dive into the groundbreaking PR vision of Brian Epstein. He and Wenner were both gay, and their impact on music can not be overlooked.

I thought this was as good a place as any to post this. David Cassidy's anecdotes about hanging out with John.

 

"You were at Lennon's Rock and Roll sessions in LA, right?"

"Yeah, and he came to my house on New Year's eve and we got drunk and played Beatles songs and I got to sing Paul's parts. When you play in casinos, they don't like you to tell stories so much, most times they say [brusquely] "Just play your songs." So instead I just say "I was lucky enough to play Beatles songs with John Lennon till five in the morning and here was one we played." Keep it short. John and I  became good friends when he was recording Rock and Roll so I was able to come down to the studio a couple of times and if you could imagine Phil Spector walking around with a fucking gun...It was nuts."

Ooo, this just had to be posted when I saw it. B.B. King humbled by the thought that John even knew his name...

I'd like to think that if John Lennon heard that, he in turn would be so humbled he would, in effect, "do a Ving Rhames".

It reminds me of when the New Yorker (back when it was the real New Yorker) at around the time when Elton John was just beginning to get hot, expressed their demure dismay at the fact that in New York City at some venue, John Lennon was among those waiting in line to get an autograph from Elton John, and not the other way around.

Since Xmas is coming up, I thought I'd share this excerpt from a letter from John to his cousin, Liela, in January, 1979.

"I thought of you a lot this Xmas -- the cottage -- the record player -- 'Good Ship Lollipop' -- 'I found my love on TREASURE ISLAND' -- the OWL(S)? The shadows on the ceiling as the cars went by at night -- putting up the paper chains -- even Norman turns into Santa Klaus in my memory! (muttering in his chair by the fire.)

Enuff of that too!

Lots of love, to all of you,

I'm sure we'll see each

other v. soon -- somehow

or other -- I'm almost

scared to go to England, 'coz

I know it would be the 

Last time I saw Mimi --

I'm a coward about

Goodbyes ..."

From the same letter:

"I'm 40 next year -- I hope life begins -- i.e. I'd like a little less 'trouble' and more -- what? I don't know."

It's one of three (known) photos taken in the summer 1978 by fan Barbara McDede, first two off to buy the papers, third coming back with the papers:

I was telling my girlfriend “it important to me that you know who the four Beatles are”

she asked me who my favorite Beatle was so she could remeber his name first. I thought about it long and hard, and I said it was John Lennon

And then you quickly realised you had made a grievous error and that George Harrison is the only favourite Beatle anyone can have a-hard-days-night-george-10

^^ Wrong thread, ASJ, but you're right. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I'm a bit disappointed in you @sir walter raleigh. Everyone remembers John's name first. You could have used that opportunity to spread Ringo awareness! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15 a-hard-days-night-george-10

I was just reading a book on John Lennon 's art and read a section about John Lennon 's "You Are Here" exhibit and Yoko's corresponding "This is Not Here" exhibit. I like the conceptual relationship they had going of making art and responding to each other's art, whether it be visual art or music.

People tend to overlook anything to do with Yoko, but she was such an important part of his creative process.

He let his hair down.

I'm glad he also took some time to watch the wheels and the shadows on the wall.

John Lennon was a fan of Genesis, another of my favorite bands.

Paul spills some beans about John. He says they masturbated together, that John once had sex with a woman while her husband watched, and that John never actually said he was Jesus Christ.
