Ooooh, Miss Tammy has a wee shiver running up and down her spine after finding this, thanks to Miss Sara at ‘Meet The Beatles for real’ for turning this up. There is only one thing Miss Tammy likes better than finding a new photo of John in 1980, and Miss Tammy’s inner niceness, and sense of propriety forbids me from disclosing what that is .. however, if anyone is in the vicinity of Oxford St this Saturday evening at approximately 2.30am, there is a fare chance you’ll find out what that is, and an even beter chance you’ll find Princess Stephanie selling tickets on the door. But i digress, for now, let us fondle ourselves with wanton inappropriate abandon, over this new 1980 pic of John.

    I love John’s ‘look’ during this period in 1980. No one had any idea as to what the ‘not too distant future’ was going to bring. All we knew and all that mattered was that John was back … looking & sounding wonderful. So, we keep these photographic treasures and find joy in knowing that he had found happiness and contentment and creativity and we’ll smile & be grateful for it!

    I don’t mind…
    I like bags

    Great to see more 1980 John Lennon photos showing up online, Thanks Tammy ! This seems to be taken the same day John was videotaped at the Hit Factory during an interview with the Star Wars sound effects heard in the background.

    So, this is October, 1980? Right?

    It seems to be that on that day, he was taking polaroids with each band member or employee at the Hit Factory. This is the fourth polaroid from that day. As far as I know, each pic was signed at the bottom with a special mention or drawing.

    Yes, definitely has a ‘polaroidish’ quality to it.
