The Greeting Committee



These photos of John wearing "The Greeting Committee" t-shirt has always been some of my favorites. Here is the story behind the photo, told by Greeting Committee member, Marie Lacey.


My friends Robin, Goldie, Barbara an I used to go see John every day while he was recording at Record Plant (1973) and he gave us the nickname, "The Greeting Committee". We made up a Tee-shirt for him and he surprised us by wearing it the very next day! I set up the picture (asked John to open his jacket so we could read the writing) and he asked me "how", so I opened up his jacket for him (yes I did!!). And Robin took this picture!

  3. He always seemed to be in a good mood during this time in his life....he used to joke with everyone in the studio...we all thought that his time with May Pang was very good for him, he smiled a lot more with her around

  4. Isn't that the same Robin Titone and Goldie Friede that used to live in Brooklyn and wrote a book together about The Beatles?? Beatles A to Z I think the title might be....Wasn't Marie Lacey the fan that 'came in through the bathroom window'??? Just wondering....
