This oversize contact sheet of 12 photos features pictures of John & Yoko performing Yoko’s Listening Piece with a stethoscope and posing for portraits in Battery Park, New York City on 4 September 1971.
John Lennon last concert ‘meltdown’ revealed. In other news regarding the Beatles and John Lennon – fans took to social media to discuss the legacy and impact of one of Lennon and the Beatles most landmark albums, Revolver.
One fan noted: “I just listened to Revolver and was reminded why this is The Beatles’ true masterpiece. It catches the Greatest Band Ever at the perfect moment! You have the band operating at their absolute peak in every way. They also decided to stop touring in 1966 to become a studio band only. Their follow-up album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, although brilliant, was mainly a project between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Ringo himself said that he learned to play chess during the studio sessions for the Sgt. Pepper album and George was clearly bored and frustrated with the whole experience. Revolver also incorporates the energy and creativity of the previous six U.K. studio albums but also hints at the brilliance to come from Sgt. Pepper through Abbey Road, their final studio album. Abbey Road was released before Let It Be, however, because the Let It Be documentary movie was delayed for various reasons.”
