    The Hollywood Vampires +1

  2. Pete F. says:

    The +1 is Canada’s own songbird Anne Murray. An unlikely match with the Vampire crew.

    Wherever this picture is its always Anne whos commented on,with a correct spelling of incongruous(but not this one)with Dolenz expression”as if we would”.John just looks like hes photobombing it.

  4. Tammy says:

    Looking at John i’d say this is 73, around the time of the ‘Mintz beach walk’.

    This was taken on Nov 27 1973 at a thanksgiving eve party at The Troubadour in Los Angeles hosted by singer Anne Murray. I’m thinking the Vampires gatecrashed the party as I can’t really see any of them being on the invite list lol

    Alice looks like Dave Hill from Slade here. Very scary!

  7. Bill C says:

    Hadn’t she just had a hit with ‘you won’t see me ‘ ?

    I believe it was Nov 21, 1973. That was Thanksgiving Eve.

  9. Bob says:

    The connection is Shep Gordon, the subject of a Mike Myers doc last year, as he represented both Anne and Alice.

  10. Anne Murray commented on this photo (excerpt courtesy of BeatleLink):

    “… The group of hard-living rockers had come to catch Murray’s headlining show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 1973. “They look like a bunch of reprobates,” Murray said of the photo. “And there I am, Miss Innocence, right in the middle of these guys who were totally all three sheets to the wind.”

    Murray invited Nilsson – “my favourite male vocalist of all time. No contest,” she said – to a recording session. “I wanted to meet him,” she said. “And he didn’t even know where he was. He was so out of it. I was so disappointed. (In 1993) we tried to get him to tape something for the Junos when I was inducted into the Hall of Fame, and he didn’t even know who I was – or who he was, I don’t think.” Nilsson died the next year.

    A happier memory was Lennon’s impromptu visit to Murray’s dressing room during a Grammy Awards ceremony in 1974, the year Murray won the best country vocal performance award for A Love Song. According to Murray, the ex-Beatle popped in and told her her version of You Won’t See Me was the best cover of a Beatles song. “And then he was gone,” she said. “I was in such shock.”

  11. If true Murray’s comment is pretty revealing about John. As much as John portrayed himself as a tough rocker he loved pop music too. Another case in point: when he gushed about the pop hit “Magic” by Olivia Newton John in 1980.
