  3. Dave O says:

    Very cool!

  4. Kevin says:

    Doesn’t John look a lot like the actor Sean Penn in this top photo?

  5. Lizzie Bravo says:

    you’re right, kevin, he does!

  6. BeatleAL says:

    Isn’t that the same tie he’s wearing?

  7. Tammy says:

    Yes .. hence the caption :-)

  8. Pete F. says:

    I hadn’t noticed that either! It’s amazing that John would hold on to something like that for so long. Many thanks Tammy for posting these.

    I’m sure his Aunt Mimi was keeping it for him! Got to love your parents keeping things for you rather than them getting lost!

    “Hi Mimi…
    I brought you this tie…
    I just need my M.B.E. for a day…”

    He had Mimi send him the tie (among a few other items) during a time of nostalgia.

  12. Ayelet says:

    Brilliant! never noticed that before.
    I love it when you find those things, like Paul wearing his old Quarrymen shirt for the photoshot in 69 (i tried searching the blog for that one but could not find it).

  13. The Losman says:

    Great picture! Johns’ mate and fellow Quarrymen member Pete Shotton on the left.

  14. Jorge says:

    Fantastic pics!

    Wow I look at him there with that school boy sneer and think – he has no idea of the life that lay ahead!
