Something in late 1976 at the Dakota
Why my confusion on this photo: I found this photo in a 1976 issue of Beatles Unlimited. Included with two John photos (one posted here) was a story about fans meeting John in 1976 in Boston. I started typing up the story and then thought, "this sounds really, really familiar. I wonder if I already have it on the site." Sure enough -- I did. The story originally appeared in With a Little Help From My Friends without any photos included. So I just jumped to the assumption that this photo was from Boston. Why else would it be in the middle of a story about John in Boston, right? Well -- I should have looked closer for sure because you all are right --- John is outside of the Dakota. Ooops!
Here is the story from Boston if you are interested.
