I heard of an incident (I know was mentioned in a few books) of John climbing Pauls fence I believe during the Get Back sessions and possibly using a brick on a painting he made and gave to Paul or a window. I think the books said it happened during the Abbey Road sessions. I am not sure if the brick thing is true but these pictures seem to show John climbing his gate and fence. From his jacket and look seems to be around the Get Back sessions. I was wondering if anyone had information on the incident and what actually happened. I think it happened because Paul no showed booked studio time.

There is a story that was supposed to happen the day when the Judge ruled on Paul's side in the lawsuit for breaking up the Beatles partnership (so 1971). John, Ringo and George all got into John car's and drove round to Paul's house at Cavendish Avenue as John was livid and wanted to confront him. Paul wasnt at home so John threw a brick thru a window.

Its a myth some folk like to put out as true. 

If you want to read about it Peter Dogget covers it in 'You Never Give Me Your Money: The Battle For The Soul Of The Beatles'.

 

I also recall the story of Paul not coming to one of the sessions during 'Abbey Road ' and John going around to find out why and being met by Linda. John stormed in and smashed a painting before leaving. Beatlelinks.net has a thread on this and notes it being Paul and Linda's anniversary.

 

I think these stories get messed up and around and merge into each other creating lots of different accounts.

Yeah I think this picture must be from the missed session. From the way John looks I guess it would be around the Get Back sessions or early Abbey Road sessions later that winter since hes wearing Yokos coat. I guess there has to be some truth to those stories since there are these pictures showing John climbing the fence..His hair looks too long for it to be 1971.

I think @Starr Shine? was referring to the smashing of the window in 1971 after the court case which those pictures are not from.
