John thanks the Greeting Committee

Photo taken by Marie Lacey 

 September 6, 1973

50 years ago a group of fans that hung around the studio while John was making "Mind Games" gave this t-shirt that said the "Greeting Committee" to him.    John gave the group this nickname because they were always there to greet him when he arrived.   They made him this shirt and gave it to him as a gift.  When they saw he was wearing their t-shirt, they asked him to open up his overshirt so they could take a photo.  

One of my all time favorite photos of John.  He must have liked the photo too because it was framed and put on the white piano at the Dakota, where it stays to this day.

  1. The smallest greeting committee that has ever been assembled ? 😋
