    Paul looks like a complete pratt, John looks quite cool and harry looks like a grizzly bear!

  3. A Car And A Room And A Room And A Room says:

    Any idea where it was taken? The house in Santa Monica? Is this a May Pang shot?

  4. stephanie says:

    just stunning!! for years and years dreamed of seeing this photo. The day ahs arrived!! thanks Tammy. Note to James: what a shallow superficial comment about Paul, c’mon it was the mid seventies, Paul looks cool by the standards of that era.

  5. Brian says:

    FAR OUT!

    John and Paul have the same shirts on as they do in May Pang’s book, as well as the shot of them with Keith Moon, in Keith Badman’s book.

    All taken in Santa Monica by the looks of it.

  6. kavada says:

    I’ve seen a video where John and Paul was playing guitars, also from 1974 – but I didn’t find the vidoe later at Internet.

  7. Ali says:

    Excellent. Is this the picture that was rumourred to be in the ‘Who is Harry Nilsson’ documentary, or is that yet another one?

    … and a video of them playing guitars… yeah we wish.

  8. Lizzie Bravo says:

    Totally fab, Tammy, is all I can say! Thanks for all your efforts in keeping this blog the very best on the web!

  9. Louise says:

    I like Paul’s 70s shag. He’s the only person I’ve ever seen who could rock that look.

  10. Sara S. says:

    I have seen the Harry Nilsson documentary and can tell you that this is indeed the photograph from it. I was anxious to get the DVD so that I could take screenshot of the picture, but it looks like Tammy somehow beat me to it (curious how).

    I screamed outloud at the showing of the documentary when this photograph came on the screen. LOL!

    I asked the director about this photo and he said that it was discovered in a box of photos that belonged to Harry. John is talking to Linda. It was taken April 1, 1974 at the house Harry and John shared. Ringo was also there that day and it is a shame that no photos of the three Beatles haven’t surfaced from this date.

  11. John Y. says:

    Paul seems to be looking at the back of a CD cover that has the same picture on it. How is this possible if it was taken April 1 1974?

  12. Markzapp says:

    OH MY. I treasure all photos that I see of John and Paul together after the Beatles. I waited years for the appearance of any of them and finally get to see them over 30 years later.

  13. Markzapp says:

    I’m always surprised that camera bug Linda never got the two of them to pose together for a casual photo.

  14. Mark Pas says:

    OMG….its so surreal….I am happy that they hooked up like this. I had hoped to see this sooner…I believe something similiar in a book,,,not sure if its May Pang or what. But here it is…WOWIE ZOWIE

  15. maxeythecat says:

    That was the cool thing about Linda…she had a terrific photographer’s instinct and always knew when it was okay to take a snap…and when not to. I’ve no doubt that she was aware that it wasn’t a good idea given just how fragile the relationship between John and Paul was during that time….notice all the pictures that we’ve seen of this particular moment look as if they’d been taken on the sly…candid and very rushed as if whoever’d taken ’em knew they weren’t really supposed to but did it anyway. Even the shots attributed to May.

  16. julio serra says:

    Doesn’t matter who took the picture. The important thing is that John & Paul did get together in the seventies more than twice. Tammy did it again. Way to go!

  17. YJ says:

    It’s great to see this!

  18. Sophie says:

    WOW!! That’s so exciting, and what a great picture as well!

    I agree, that if Linda had been there taking pictures it may have come off badly on Paul (at least asa far as John was concerned) that this was some forceful, superficial staged metting, rather than what it was – two old friends spending time together again. It wouldn’t have been appropriate, probably.

  19. Sara S. says:

    There is a photograph taken by Linda of John from this day. I would bet that in the McCartney family albums there are several photos of Paul and John together taken on April 1, 1974.

  20. Steve L. says:

    What is paul holding in his hand? It looks like maybe a 45 in its sleeve. Thoughts?

  21. robert says:


  22. Chris says:

    I don’t think it was taken by Linda. Linda’s head is right in front of Johns. I think it was taken by May Pang.

  23. Tammy says:

    This is from the Harry Doco, i’ll get a better capture of the still when the dvd comes out.

  24. Ben C. says:

    Anyone else realize that John saw the most of Paul when Ono wasn’t around? Anyone else realize he also saw more of Julian at this time?

  25. Jeannette says:

    Ben C. from all accounts I’ve heard, John was very much his old self pre-Yoko while separated from her. He was back in touch with his sisters, his son, Ringo, Paul, George…then once he got back with that woman, he went back to being ‘reclusive’ and rarely talking to anybody.

    I thought the girl in front of John was Heather? The hair looks too dark to be Linda’s.

  26. Wogew says:

    Bigger version in my blog 😉

  27. Sara S. says:

    John is talking to Linda. It was confirmed by the director of the biography.

  28. Lucy says:

    The picture was not taken by May Pang. If it was it would have been in her overhyped book.

  29. jim says:

    john looks like he just rolled out of bed.

  30. Nick says:

    There is a snap of John taken by Linda on this same day that appearedin Linda’s 1976 Calendar book.

  31. Tammy says:

    So it’s all about size now Wogew :-)

  32. Chris says:

    Wow! What DVD is coming out? Did I miss something?

  33. Brian says:

    Instamatic Karma is a great book, under-hyped if anything.

  34. james says:

    Sorry didnt mean to offend, Paul does look very seventies and very frank zappa!

  35. julie fajardo says:

    in this picture of paul and john it seems they are not really close to each other.

  36. bibi says:

    HOLY, this is really quite amazing! Thank you so much Tammy!!!

  37. bibi says:

    I think they all look great! Paul looks terrific as always. I dug his 1970s look big time!

  38. Brian says:

    Julie: they’re about 30cm apart I would say.

  39. Chris says:

    Okay, I took the photo. :)

  40. Wogew says:

    Size matters, Tammy 😉 ! Btw did you get the DVD I sent you?

  41. Tammy says:

    Hi, yeh i got the dvd, A-mazing .. i sent you a long-ish email about late last week, have a look in your ‘in box’ .. i’ll see if i can find it and resend :-)

  42. Wogew says:

    Oh that email must have turned left at Greenland, but I got the second one! Cheers!

  43. stephanie says:
