Containing Multitudes Since 2004
"Take this, brother -- may it serve you well."
Saw this in CREEM once. One of my favorite Beatles pics!
Rather prophetic, everything old is new again.
There's also a photo of Paul grabbing John by the lapel and waving his fist at him. And the one of George holding nails that he's about to hammer in John's head. The dark side of the mop tops. :-)
Excuse me for using this means to communicate, but shouldn't there be a So Loathsome I Could Cry for the late Allen Klein?
I honestly don't think Klein was all that loathsome. I've never bought any of that "He split The Beatles up" bidness; not about him, not even about Yoko Ono. Believe me, if the Fab Four didn't have Klein and Ono on their hands when they did, they'd have found something, someone, to use as a point of division.You can see the malaise they were in rather starkly in 'Let It Be'; which is why the film is so depressing at times (the 3+ hours of bootlegged outtakes are even worse). These were four guys who, by 1969, had no clue who they were individually, collectively, in any sense; all they knew for certain was that, for whatever reason, they weren't going to be The Beatles (whatever that was) for very much longer.Any rate, I don't think Klein deserves the bad rap he's gotten over the years (Yoko? That's another story).
,... wonder what Mick & Keef would say to that?
Ringo looks to have a pretty big fist.From what I've read of Klein he was a loathsome creature.
