Albert Marrion recalls “This photo session was done for [Brian] Epstein as a friendly gesture against the wishes of my partner… I took about thirty photographs…but discarded all but sixteen negatives because many showed Lennon and McCartney acting up and spoiling the pose. No doubt, those negatives should have been kept, looking back.”

Wow. Just wow.

Ringo saw John one more time in 1980. As he told Barbara Walters in 1981, “I saw him on the 15th November. I was staying at The Plaza. We went over to New York for a while. And I hadn’t seen him for a while because, you know, we see each other wherever we are. And he came over with Yoko and we had such a great time because they stayed five hours. And it didn’t matter that it was a year between we didn’t see each other, it was always fine when we did, but it was a particularly great time that we, that I had, anyway… Oh, man, they were happy. They were two people in one.”
