Lennon: Lost Weekend
« on: December 31, 2015, 11:28:25 AM »

I never liked that term...even though he's the one who started it. Ha!

That was 18 months or something wasn't it?  Collaborated on two #1 hits with other artists, had a #1 album and song.  Produced the the Harry album.  Saw Julian more than ever.  I think the Troubadour incident and other events are played up too much.  Had great moments with Paul. 

Idk.  I don't look at this as lost.

Neither do I, Greg.....it looks like the last time he was truly collaborative with anyone besides Yoko.

I've ordered May Pang's book. Actually i think most of the recording of Mind Games was in this period plus Walls and Bridges and Rock n Roll, the collaboration with Bowie also happened in this period.

He was active and accessible during this period, also saw the UFO, strange story.

The May Pang book has arrived and I'm reading it now. Has anyone else read it? It's pretty intense, for the most part it feels pretty authentic and is a real glimpse into the world of John Lennon. A strange place, I really love the guy but he can be exasperating and Yoko is crazy as, nothing we didn't know. It's quite a big book and has a lot of detail I certainly recommend it. Phil Spector again unsurprisingly is crazy in a not that endearing way.
