An online Beatles fan club for and about Beatle fans
what is this guy's connection to John; have seen many photos of him that look fake
assume you're referring to several pics where EM looks photoshop which are rather strange
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.
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.
Mark - just watched the beach interview for the 1st time and it really touched me to see John again walking & talking well
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.
