    wowwww tammy.
    the best I’ve seen in a long time.
    is this video the one it’s gonna be played in central park on john’s birthday?

  2. Ishie says:

    I’m sure that this must be a most cherished moment for this lucky fan. How incredibly lucky to share a second or two with John!

    Hi — I’m with PBS, and I can let you know, this is indeed the documentary from PBS’s American Masters series that will be screened at Central Park on the 9th.

    BTW, here’s a preview of the film, which will be on PBS Nov. 22. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTXklDY7IVE

    Thanks for the preview info Kevin!

    I’ve always thought John looked cool in that Nov ’80 walk-in-the-park video/shoot.

    Sorta Beatle-esque with the hair and all…

    Good stuff…

    Hair Peace,

    Erik

    Erik, I felt the same as you. He had a coolness in look, walk & manner. He was happy, he was confident and it transferred into the photos & video footage. It’s a good memory to have, isn’t it?

  8. Jennifer says:

    Thank you very much for these. : )

  9. Erik says:

    HI Ishie, totally! :-)

  10. luis says:

    hi robert
    what don’t you believe?

  11. Mike says:

    Wow – just watched the PBS video clip linked above… I never knew that John deliberately put his guitar out of tune. Just when you think you know a lot about him, you learn something new. I play guitar and I always thought that his Ric just sounded that way naturally… now I have to go back and re-listen to all his solo stuff.

    Thanks Tammy and Kevin!

    This looks like it was taken around the time they did footage for either Woman or Thin Ice (I can’t remember which, sorry). I used to see John often on the upper west side, and I could spot him a couple of blocks away by his distinctive walk.

  13. james says:

    Hi Melody I love the fact you seen John walking around, when you see footage of john walking he definitely had a style, there were a couple of young kids he later employed after hanging around and they said that his walk was very very pronounced in a john way, like he was rocking along!what would you say he walked like?

  14. Brian says:

    Amazon I notice has some 30 second snippets from the new stripped down DF album—sounded hardly any different to me.

  15. Steve in the Bronx says:

    Look at the girls face in the photo. She represents all of us!

  16. jim says:

    brian–you haven’t heard enough, then (or else haven’t listened too well)–as the stripped down version of DF is simply AMAZING!!

  17. Brian says:

    I’ve only heard the 30 second snippets… I’m looking forward to the whole thing now! Well, John’s 7 songs anyway.
