Annie Leibovitz

Först ville Annie ta en bildserie på John,som tidskriften Rolling Stone önskat, men John vägrade. Yoko skulle vara med ! Då föreslog Annie att dom båda skulle klä av sig nakna men Yoko kände sig obekväm med det men tog av sig på överkroppen. Annie övertygade henne då om att hon skulle sätta på sig tröjan igen och endast John var avklädd.


Först hade både John & Yoko kläder på sig för dom skulle hitta "rätt ställning" för bilderna.Denna bild har nog inte visats förut.

"This is it, this is our relationship" sa John till Annie Leibovitz.


Några timmar senare var John brutalt mördad, en hel värld var i chock.

Susan Tedeschi och Derek Trucks med band på Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010. Lyssna på slide guitar solot i "Midnight in Harlem", från 4:10, som Derek framför, ja, detta får jag riktig ståpäls av,så hiskeligt jävla bra. Visste inte att man kunde hantera en gitarr på detta sätt.

Vet att bl.a Eric Clapton står bakom scenen och många med han måste fått knäck i brallorna efter detta solo!

The Beatles

12 january, 1967

Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane R5570

The Beatles - Penny Lane 

Studio 3. 2.30-11.00pm Recording: 'Penny Lane' (overdub onto take 9). Mono mixing: 'Penny Lane' (remixes 7, 8, from take 9). Producer: George Martin; Engineer: Geoff Emerick; 2nd Engineer: Phil McDonald.
Recording of trumpets, oboes, cor anglais and double-bass for 'Penny Lane'.

"Penny Lane there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to know.
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say "Hello".

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar,
And little children laugh at him behind his back.
And the banker never wears a mac
In the pouring rain, very strange.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass,
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
He likes to keep his fire engine clean,
It's a clean machine.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
A four of fish and finger pies
In summer. Meanwhile back
Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray.
And though she feels as if she's in a play,
She is anyway.

In Penny Lane the barber shaves another customer,
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim,
And then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain - very strange.

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back.
Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
Penny Lane!"

Denna låt med Carly Simon, hörde jag första gången våren 1973 på en fest vid St:Eriksplan 4.LP'n som helhet är helt suverän och håller än idag högklass.Med på LP'n är ju bl.a Paul & Linda McCartney,Mick Jagger m.fl Har du inte hört Carly är detta en bra LP in i hennes musik.

På festen minns jag mycket väl att jag fick höra en ny grupp för mig:Gruppen Yes och trippel LP'n var "Yessongs". Efter detta lyssnande var jag fast i Carly och Yes.

Tänk så bra det var med fester "för i tiden" då det fanns LP skivor.

6 January, 1973, Carly Simon's 'You're So Vain', (with Mick Jagger on backing vocals), started a three week run at No.1 on the US singles chart. In 2015, after keeping quiet for more than 40 years, Carly Simon admitted that 'You're So Vain' was about Warren Beatty, but only one verse of it. Simon said the other verses were about two other men.
