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 ?
