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!
