    Did anyone ever ask John about his bizarre stance?He really was one of a kind.

  2. Brian says:

    What’s a Beatle year worth in ordinary human years I wonder?

  3. Elle says:

    Great comparison …. in six years from ‘Moptops’ to Men!

  4. Sophie says:

    Lol, Brian. I expect 1 Beatle year was probably worth 7 or 8 human years!!

    What a great comparison! And I love George’s green pants…

    Yeah regarding stage

    John’s stance….

    Ray Coleman writes some good stuff about that in his John book (I think maybe it’s called “Lennon: The Definitive Bio”; not sure, something like that, but it’s a really good Lennon book)….He describes the power of the stance. How it was so powerful at the Cavern etc…head-up, looking down at the audience, legs apart in an overt sexual innuendo (so to speak).

    If you check-out You-tube, you can see how Davies from the Kinks (the younger one, not Ray) copied it in the mid 60’s (at least the leg part). Also, Bill Wyman from the Stones mid 60’s. And in some early Who TV appearances so did Entwistle (sp?). And scores of other mid 60’s groups.

    It’s interesting to note that Liam Gallagher’s “stance” at the Mic with Oasis is derived from Lennon (the head cocked-up, legs apart; no guitar of course though). But it’s a straight homage to the Lennon “stance”.

    Hair Peace,

    I LOVE this! Amazing!

    About John’s stance: I vagually recall reading somewhere that he mimicked the stance of some other musician.. Can’t remember who it was or where I read it though! :S Oh well.. The stance is cool!

    Hey Another Fan,

    That’s interesting (about John mimicking his stance on someone).

    It would be neat to know who! (maybe a 50’s rocker???)

    BEFORE AND AFTER…what?????????????????

    it’s after they meet ELVIS on 08/27/1965.

    they freed themselves, after that.

    they reached their goal to meet in person with the man

    which gave the reason to do what they did, and then,

    after that, they start to innovate more and more

    until the final split.

    Hi Erik!

    I’m sorry, I can’t remember where I read it! I think it was a comment on a vid on youtube… Needle in a haystack kind of thing.. Sorry!
