Lots of booze, partying with no tomorrow in sight, bad companies....
A huge health problem that led to his undergoing surgery (I think he lost a piece of his stomach in the process),

Small Intestine ;)
He was talking about it in Postcards from the Boys and he said he couldn't drink after the surgery, but he enjoyed filling other people's glasses.

so - YEAH -
perhaps to start a new craze, perhaps for a new lease in life
he shaved off his hair, beard AND EYEBROWS !

I have a pic but I have to edit it cause he's giving the finger.
I hate this look - he looks like he's going through chemo - God forbid!

I hate that look too. I had the same thought you had when I first saw that picture. Thank God those times are long gone !

BTW, thanks for the info on his small intestine....

Lennon never shaved his hair in '73! It was Jan 1970 or year 1 as the man called it!!!
It gradually grew back through Imagine and was at full length again by Walls & bridges and the Whistle Test Interview!!!!
