He was really very serious...just the opposite as he was in The Monkees.

I'm pretty sure it is, Kev.

It wasn't uncommon to see them strolling through Central Park that way.

I was content with just an exchange of "hi's" Kev.  It was 1979 and 1980 so there were no digital cameras or cell phones with built-in cameras.  I kept my Nikon in my OR locker so I never got a picture of them.

Christopher Reeve was once brought into our ER while filming Superman II.  He had a severe allergic response to a pain reliever which had aspirin in it unbeknownst to him.  He was in full Superman regalia too!

He was very embarassed at the incident and apologized to us for "disrupting the more important things we were doing."  But that was Christopher Reeve...very unassuming and a lot like the Clark Kent role he played.








Sorry for straying off topic.

A total act, as always in public...
By the way, I'm sure none of you could open my Facebook chat today with Tony Bramwell, but he told me that he had met Fred Seaman a couple of times and that he was a "good chap."

I just purchased the Last Days of John Lennon by Fred Seaman. I had been told about this book by a mail courier who would deliver to my work and he had actually been around John in the Village in New York the last few years of his life. He told me that this is the MOST FACTUAL account of the last years of John Lennon that has ever been written. He even told me about how the Lennon diaries were intended strictly and solely for Julian and how Yoko did NOT want him to have them. I am convinced that one of the greatest days on earth is when this woman finally passes away and Julian Lennon gets to have not only the money, but the belongings/whatever else he is ENTITLED to from being the first born son of his world famous father. He has been neglected long enough!

I'm with ya, Nowhere Man...
Seaman's book makes Lennon actually look like a pretty good guy in a lot of ways and quite normal, as, like most stars, he enjoyed his privacy and thought most people were idiots when around him which they probably were...
It was a pretty harsh attack on Yoko.
This is the type of attack John Lennon should have performed on her.
Then again, the Lennonists will NEVER read anything negative of him.
(There are a lot of things I like about Lennon, by the way.)

thats a very strange comment

'Ive fallen in love with this woman, she's the only woman Ive ever truly loved, she's THE love of my life, Ive written some beautiful songs about her because my love for her is so so deep.

One of my fans who has read a few Beatle books and thinks he knows whats good for me and my marriage/family, thinks I should write a book where I make her out to be a lying, deranged, evil, attention seeking manipulative mad woman.....and have it printed as fact '

not physical..Lennon only weighed about 145. He could have been hurt.
