    I wish that other dude would have been John.

  2. Chris says:

    John had his big beard and new glasses during this period. It would have been a great photo indeed! Imagine being this guy standing with The Beatles? I wonder what the real reason Eric did not invite John to his wedding? Could it be George did not want to see him? Maybe Eric did not like the way he was treated during the concert at Toronto when he was left in the van instead of going in the limo? I’m only guessing. But you don’t NOT invite a Beatle to your wedding for nothing.

    amazing !!! apart from Ringo’s group wedding photo, dont recall ever seeing three Beatles in a photo together, (after 69 & before 95)

    Um, I believe that Eric did invite John but John couldn’t make it. I don’t know the reasons but I read this somewhere.

  5. Another_Fan says:

    ^To Jennifer: No, I recall reading that Eric ran into John and while talking Eric realised that John didn’t receive an invite. (Eric’s mistake?) And Eric was really embarassed about it and also thought that he had missed the perfect opportunity to have all four Beatles together again.

    Guys feel free to correct me if I’m wrong :)

    The clue is in the URL “Lonnie Donegan”—the skiffle dude they originally wanted to sound like.

    John always maintained it was visa issues due to 3 of them having pot convictions that prevented any get-togethers… though I suppose that excuse didn’t really hold by 1979, as John had the green card already.

    I bet they all jammed as well.

  7. Chris says:

    In Eric’s autobiographic John called Eric and asked why he wasn’t invited to the wedding, and that he would have gone.

  8. alex of bronx says:

    Doesn’t the story goes that they all jammed along with Clapton and others after partying all afternoon and one of the 3 said something like we have to do this again with John sometime.

    Just a damn rare, amazing photo! The first Threatles photo.

  10. Baldbeatle says:

    There’s a baby face on the picture. Very odd.

  11. Leah says:

    I read in both Pattie and Eric’s autobiographies that they had no idea why John wasn’t invited.

  12. Markzapp says:

    The photo is from Lonnie’s website. The photos fade into one another and that is why there is a baby’s face appearing.

  13. Brian says:

    I think it’s a real double-exposure, back in the day when photography meant lots of winding forward and back and sometimes buggering it up, like this one (isn’t the baby James?)
