RIP Bruce Hamlin.

Today The Beatle fan world lost a giant. Australian Beatle lover and scholar Bruce Hamlin
has passed away.

Bruce was a close personal friend, so it’s hard for me to write anything
at the moment.

Bruce dedicated his life to spreading the joy, and the friendships, that
The Beatles music brings, that’s an honourable life, and a life well lived.

The above image is the album Bruce compiled, curated, and wrote the liner notes for, for EMI Australia.

Leaving 48th street.

Saturday 15th November 1980?

The photo of John posted above has been around for years, but cropped, and in bad quality. Recently the uncropped version has appeared.

After studying the photo, and looking at the background, I’m pretty certain this
photo was taken outside the Plaza Hotel, on Saturday 15th November 1980, when John and Yoko visited Ringo, Barbara and Marjorie.

If you look at the pic of Ringo and Barbara, you can see marbled columns behind them. In the pic of John and Yoko, you can also see marbled columns. Most tellingly, you can see luggage behind John, as well as what looks like porters trolleys.

Please feel free to open this up to discussion. John also wore these clothes (or similar) for the Jack Mitchell photo shoot earlier that month, and also for the filming in the park, and Sperone gallery. If this is in fact a photo of John and Yoko leaving the Plaza, it fills a BIG gap.

For years it’s perplexed myself and others how John and Yoko could enter and Leave the Plaza hotel, without being photographed.

I’m pretty certain the above shows they were photographed that day.

Sooooo, what have I missed?

Hope everyone has been well.

Miss Tammy was going to apologise for her absence, but I shan’t. Any periods of inactivity
are born of necessity because of, and for, health reasons.

Thanks for the messages, it’s very kind of you all.

I can’t promise I’ll be back up to speed posting as I once used to do, lets see how I go.

It’s been an interesting break, I cracked a 1980 photo mystery (pic
coming soon) and somehow in that time, I managed to communicate with Paul three times (I’ll
explain later).

Tammy: Duchess of Oven.
