Earlier, I’d given John the shirt he wore that particular night. I’d started spending time with a group  called the Rockercisers, who wanted to teach people how to exercise in place – they pitched it as aerobic dance for future astronauts. As soon as I gave John the bright, loud shirt they’d designed, he took his shirt off and put the new one on. The Rockercisers were pretty happy when they say the picture of John wearing their shirt.

From Right Place, Right Time: The Life of a Rock & Roll Photographer by Bob Gruen.

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.

  

I kicked around a bit too @Magill. The Rockerciser Company still exists (appears to mostly be gyms playing rock music – found a video of 20 people playing air guitar), so I went ahead and sent them an email asking about the shirt. Hopefully I can get a picture to share.

How did John and Cynthia meet and why did they enter a relationship?

^They met at the Liverpool art school, and were together in one or two (don’t remember exactly) classes so they started a relationship there.

 

I saw this pic and focused on their framed picture of the naked two virgins photo session and then wondered who that naked guy at their left is? i always thought they (John and Yoko) were alone when they took this photo:

What do people think of John’s UFO story? 

He’s absolutely sincere in his statements.

Well, if it was flying and he didn’t know what it was – then it was a UFO 😉

Does anyone know where I can get ahold of John’s personal tapes from 1979 where he talks about his life and depression? Can only find about 15 minutes of it on Youtube.

I was under the impression those fifteen minutes (where he talks about 9 Newcastle Road etc) is the only audio to exist. I think he gave up fairly quickly.

I was doing some research and there seems to be a person(s) with more of the tapes but I can’t recall what website I found that on.

The tapes were among items stolen by John’s personal assistant, John Seaman, after John’s murder. He made the argument that the items he stole were things John wanted Julian to have, but made no attempt to pass them on to Julian, but instead passed the tapes to another writer to transcribe in preparation for a book, can’t remember who it was, but they pulled out once they heard Seaman was being sued by Yoko.

Seaman did go on to publish a book, which Yoko sued over and was banned for breaking court injunctions. They have been back in the last few months when he spoke of publishing an updated version of the book. I believe it has been settled out of court with no book forthcoming and with Seaman again forbidden to break the confidentially agreement he signed when entering John’s employment for personal profit.
