I think Maxwell's Silver Hammer was also considered granny music.

What?!?!?!? What granny (other than me, obviously) would want to listen to a song about someone (presumably a kid, considering he goes to school) whacking people on the head with a hammer to kill them?

"Granny shit music" was a description applied to just three songs during John's 1970 Rolling Stone interview, @TheWalrusWasBrian -- Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da Maxwell's Silver Hammer  and Teddy Boy . If you look at them, they are all story songs that John felt they'd spent too long working on in the studio because of Paul's perfectionism.

Many similar-styled songs are often suggested as being songs that John considered "Granny shit" -- possibly correctly -- but John only definitely applied it to just those three songs.

There are quite a few places I've heard mentioned (mostly bars), but this is the only place for which I have first person confirmation. The place was called Cafe La Fortuna and was located at 69 West 71st St. I found this image on Pinterest, but I have no way to verify if it's actually the place (closed now).

The Nobody Told Me video has a scene where John and Yoko are hanging out with Andy Warhol in a place named The Chelsea Buh, but I can't find any information about it.

Thanks Sigh. 

I read about his NY optometrist , don't know if he's still there (probably not), and , of course, he enjoyed Central Park.

I think there was a kind of restaurant there where he liked to go ?

Welcome @rune79 

I thought the color scheme was reminiscent of a Warhol piece, but can't locate anything that matches. Here are some other pics from that day.

This zoomed edit appears to show some letters and perhaps a face with sunglasses? The picture was taken in 1980 by a photographer named Bob Gruen. Prints are for sale on his website. The listing for the picture you posted reads "John Lennon wearing Rockerciser shirt at The Hit Factory, NYC. Image #: C-08 © Bob Gruen Item 72 of 91". That's all I got for now.a-hard-days-night-john-3

Hmmm... Ive seen that shirt before... Yeah, i've got nothing.

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I know what you mean! I thought for sure the shirt design was lifted from an album cover, but so far no luck finding it.

I would have loved John to have worn a Batman themed shirt. Don’t think this one is, though.

There's a chance it could have been custom made for John, as I searched the entire internet looking for that shirt. All I'm getting is "Mysterious John Lennon shirt" stuff.
