Michael Caine talks about meeting John in his autobiographycheersMark H
very good blog !
I love your blog and I’m happy you’re back!Sara
Can you tell me more about the meeting? What did he wrote?
The initial meeting between late Beatle John Lennon and legendary actor Sir Michael Caine was marked by booze binge and ‘bad behaviour.’
The English film actor recently revealed that the late rocker and he got drunk together and “behaved badly,” when they first met.
The rocker met Caine at the Cannes Film Festival in France in 1964, where they became friends and also drinking partners.
“We were getting through this day of press conferences, me for the Ipcress File while I think he was probably doing A Hard Day’s Night” Contactmusic.com Caine, as saying.
“We introduced ourselves to people as John Lemon and Michael Micklewhite, which is my real name. We got very pissed and behaved very, very badly,” he added.
John came to despise Michael Caine. Actually, hate would not be to strong of a word here. In late 1968, when John and Yoko were just starting to get lots of negative press about their relationship. Knowing he and John were friends Michael Caine was asked by a writer about Johns new love. His answer would enrage John for the rest of his life ! He said; “Well, I would hope he would find a nice english girl”. Need I say anything more ?
