Ono hooked John up with a former personal assistant by the name of May Pang, who has just released a book of personal photos from that lost weekend era. This is actually her second book, which is really just a collection of photos.
It’s interesting to note that Cynthia and Julian Lennon have endorsed the book, called Instamatic Karma. I personally love the name; it’s a great play on words. And of course, the book has created a big buzz. But what I really like about this time period of John’s life is that he really got back into his music, and also collaborated with many other artists too.
Not only did he record three hit albums; Mind Games, Rock n’ Roll, and Walls and Bridges, but Lennon also recorded and worked with David Bowie, Harry Nilsson, Mick Jagger, and Ringo Starr. He also performed with Elton John in 1974, in what I believe may be his last concert performance.
Whatever Gets You Thru The Night, eh John?
