Huh, first time I'd ever heard of that Lew Grade thing - I always thought his final appearance was with Elton John at MSG.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I suppose it's like Candlestick Park vs. Apple Rooftop. MSG with Elton John was Lennon's last concert appearance before a paying audience, A Salute to Sir Lew was a televised event in front of the great and good. He hated Lew Grade (the man who bought Northern Songs) but it was a good chance to promote Rock 'N' Roll (he also performed Stand By Me - but I couldn't find footage of that), hence all the musicians having two faces and the "BOMF" on the drumkit, which is thought to stand for "Back of My Face" (though there are also claims for "Brothers of Mother F*****s"). Comments on how two-faced Lennon felt for agreeing to appear.

I think they got it right from the beginning, "John, Paul, George and Ringo."

Definitely :) .

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
