Unfortunately John was drinking heavily at that time

As the Smothers Brothers found out one night when John had Harry Nilsson in tow. LOL

Although it was obviously a very low point in John's life, I think I would have been CHOKING all over the place if I were there to witness it.

Yeah me too, man. That's hilarious if you dont take into account how wasted he was during that period. Fly on the wall action would have been great, lol.

I would have slapped him around and told him to ditch those losers like Elliot Mintz that clinged to him like parasites. When I saw some of these guys on the Imagine film, the first thing I thought was what a bunch of dorks. Hanging out with those people is not John.

Those parasites are more related to Yoko....spies if you will. Harry Nilsson was more John's style....and he hung (She bang she bang..oh sorry, lol) with him alot.

Harry Nilsson was first connected to the Beatles in ´68, when the fabs professed their admiration for Harry´s album - "....Aerial Ballet". Ringo´s limo when to the airport to pick up Harry, and when he got in the limo he found a pack of ciggies of the same brand he used to smoke (coincidence - Ringo´s fave brand too). In the studio he saw recording of "Revolution" (the fast one) and was one of the first persons outside the fab four to see the "Two Virgins" cover photo (not a happy occurrence for him, I suppose [:D]).

P.S. That cover is one of the ugliest lack of cover kinda cover....[:D]
