    This was another cool look for John. I can almost see him looking this way as an older man. One of many differant looks I’m sure.

  2. alf says:

    lots of blings and rings .

  3. Kwai Chang says:

    “Elvis” monogram…
    Dr. Winston O’ Boogie…medallion
    I wonder who the brass dog-tag is for!
    maybe it says:
    “please don’t call the dog catcher…
    I know my way home”
    (the separation just didn’t work out)

  4. Jennifer says:

    Thanks so much for sharing these, the second one is brand new to me and I’ve never seen the first without a watermark on it before. : )

  5. This is hands down, flat out, my least favorite look of John ever, so dated, so hidious, SO seventies .. John had a lot of self competition during 75 for his worst look, all those leisure suits, all that beige!! :-)

  6. Jocelyn says:

    My own worthless opinion is in full agreement with Tammy. I cringe when I see photos of John looking like that, and yes, I’m old enough to remember when that was considered cool.

  7. Usagi says:

    I love John dearly, but I have to agree with Tammy & Jocelyn it’s not the best look for him. Though what he has on in the pics is a bit better than that UGLY beige leisure suit with that even uglier striped scarf and that hat.

  8. Cara says:

    Yeah, I agree that the look is very dated, but I kind of remember it as pretty cool at the time… especially his platforms. Then again, I was still in elementary school. I think it’s far from his worst, though, which for me is the Troubadour time. Dreadful hair.

  9. Karen says:

    didn’t like it then, and it hasn’t aged well.

    I remember watching this on TV back in ’75 and I cringed then. It made him look bald. Of course, when I look at photos of me in 1975….. not much better

  11. Lizzie says:

    please don’t throw stones at me but… i love john with the long hair! i love those photos of him with the beige suit and striped tie… though i agree that the troubadour hair wasn’t that great. but then i’m easy (easy like sunday morning, kwai…) i can see beauty in that man whichever way he looks.

  12. Kwai Chang says:

    Hi, Lizzie!
    Have no fear…
    I love the way you love John.
    That’s the kind of love that can save the world.
    If we could all see how much love you have for John, the whole world would be jealous because, then, it would be obvious that we aren’t loving enough. So, thank you. Your kindness inspires hope and joy in me regularly. It was exactly one year ago today…that my Mom lost her long battle against Cancer. Her name was Betty. I really miss her.
    Thank you, Lizzie for making this Sunday morning MUCH easier!
    Your friend,
    Kwai Chang

    dear kwai, i didn’t see your post until now. again, i’m so very sorry for your loss. my mom will be 84 this month, we are very close. i don’t know how much longer she’ll be around. i know i’m going to miss her a lot (even the way she sometimes gets on my nerves…) when she’s gone. thank you for your lovely words – i don’t think i deserve them. i’m not a very good fan. i don’t have all his records, i don’t know all his songs by heart. i have a ton of books about him & the band which i never read (i guess i’m waiting for mark’s books – i believe i’m a beatle biography virgin… don’t remember reading any of them), a ton of videos i never watched. yesterday i gave another one of my lectures here in rio to 300+ people. if there’s one thing i know i can do is get an audience emotional by the way i describe being in london in the late 60’s and seeing the boys. by the way, i’ve been working on my book quite a bit. getting there. kwai, if you want to chat (and that goes for anyone else here), please call me on skype at lizziebravo, on facebook chat or e-mail i’m a good listener! don’t suffer alone. love to all. (it’s a fact: my posts are always the longest… i know i talk too much and i’m sorry about that).

  15. Tammy says:

    Miss Lizzie, never feel you talk too much, we’re all friends here, i think the greatest things the Fabs have done for the world, besides the music, is the great friendships and community they bring us, by and large Beatle fans are great people, and we’re very like minded, so we’re drawn to each other with empathy. My Fab friends have been front and centre to celebrate my joys, and soften my hurts. I think we do pretty well in spite of the distances and technology between us :-)

  16. Kwai Chang says:

    Thanks…I needed that

    it is said that
    a good soldier is not violent…
    a good fighter is not angry…
    a good victor is not vengeful…

    How do you know that we aren’t making you ‘talk’?
    Maybe, you know how much we love listening to you…
    and, so, you feel obligated. You can stop if you want to…
    but, we will get you to do it again.
    You are a good Beatle fan.

    The empirical method has confirmed…
    “Beatle fans are the greatest people”.
    There are only two places that a person can find true happiness:
    1. Where you stand
    2. Beatle music

    Thank you,
