  2. He us Elliot Mintz, a press agent and friendly of John and Yoko. He represents other celebrities too, I believe. Elliot can be seen interviewing John while they are walking on the the beach circa 1974.

  3. Elliott Mintz is not "fake." I grew up in Los Angeles in the 1960-70's and remember his entertainment interviews on the telly with many artists, including John Lennon.

  5. Mintz was more a friend of Ono’s than John’s. Seems John put up with him for the sake of his wife, but he had his limits. It’s quite strange that in a great many photos of John & Mintz, Mintz is looming in the background with no real interaction with John. It’s almost like he’s some sort of groupie. Check out the Imagine/John Lennon film from 1988 for Mintz saying John was his best friend (ROFL). Better yet, read Mintz’s account of the years in seclusion in “The Ballad of John & Yoko.” It’s accepted as fiction by most these days, but 35 years ago it actually seemed plausible. These days Mintz is doing PR for the likes of Paris Hilton and I think at one time for Don Johnson.
