    Who took this photo a tourist or someone in the Lennon camp? Summer of 1979. Love it!

    I’m pretty sure I would have had heart failure if I saw JL walking down the street…Awesome pic – never saw this before.

  6. Jennifer says:

  7. Steve in the Bronx says:

    These are the great pics of John. It looks like it could have been taken last week!

  8. Chris says:

    This is a fantastic photo! I love photos of John in 1979! I wonder who took this? Could it have been Fred? Great find! I was graduating High School this year.

  9. Lizzie says:

    totally fab.

  10. A different Jennifer says:

    Ugh…if I was on vacation and randomly saw John Lennon with a bike I wouldn’t be able to take a picture because I’d be, like, shaking. That would be my exact reaction, but ONLY for John Lennon.

  11. Jeff says:

    @Chris, Fred didn’t go to Japan with the Lennon’s in 1979 according to his book

  12. Chris says:

    Thanks Jeff. I would love to read Fred’s book. Does anyone know where I can get a copy?

  13. Jeff says:

    hi TheyKnittedHim, i saw john walking down the street at least once in soho while they were editing magical mystery tour – maybe more than once. the only reason i didn’t have a coronary is i was 15: strong heart!

    such a great photo – wonder what it’s origins are

    This picture was probably taken around August 10th,1979. It was probably taken in a small town called Karizawa. I met John and Yoko on August 6th in Tokyo and they said they were going to Karizawa the next day. There is also a book of photos taken at that time. I am judging this date by the length of his beard. Julian was also vacationing with them.

    Dan you’re another one who had 3rd kind encounter with my extraterrestial hero. Maybe he really existed then! And about Julian … why isn’t there even a picture of him, then? And not even a story about his presence (apart from yours, ok) in Japan with them?
