WOW!! .. A new pic of John in 1980, it never ceases to amaze me that even after thirty three years new photos of John from that year still surface. This pic is fantastic as it peels away another layer of mystery to the first week of December 1980.

If anyone has any info on the photo, who took it, and who besides John and Yoko is in the photo, please let us know.

I’m pretty sure this photo is from Monday December 1st.

You can see a time line from this period if you search the April 2008 archives.

    What a surprise to see another 1980 photo surface. I loved his look during this period, wearing his Mayfairs!
    Thanks for finding & sharing this with us!

    AMAZING!!! Sorry I don’t know anything about it… Will send it to my New York friends who used to stand outside the Dakota (“The Greeting Committee”, remember the t-shirt? John named them that!) and see if they have any answers.

    John’s hair has a fresh washed ‘Floof’ to it, and if you look it has an almost identical look to it as the pics from the 3rd where John is sitting on his bed, it even has that bang falling away over his forehead. John usually had the Sunday off, so on Monday the 1st he was probably working, tho i’m not sure of any press from this day, BBC, RKO, Rolling Stone and Soho Weekly news are all accounted for, there is a little known interview done with Japan radio from late 1980, but i think that was only a phone interview .. nevermind, i’ll settle for drooling over this pic for a while :-)

    Hi Stuart, nice to hear from you :-)

    Do you have a link to the Yoko page where the photo is?, I can’t find it, I’ve looked on Yoko’s Facebook, as well as Imagine peace but can’t find anything, I’m not sure what the site is, any help to a direct link would be really helpful :-)

    Miss Sara found this out:

    “This photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono was taken outside the Sherman Grinberg Film and Tape Library in NY the Friday before John was Murdered. Pic was taken by the building maintenance guy in the hallway outside of Sherman Grinberg Film and Tape Library at 630 9th Ave,NYC Dec 4th 1980″ James Smith”

    I still don’t think it’s the 4th.
