“Yeah, and love can be pretty tough on us, can’t it? John said. We sat quietly together, a moment suspended in time. Then he smiled, almost mischievously , “But the great thing about love, Paul, is you always get another chance.” “For sure,” I said. We were silent again, and after awhile John said, “Off to write me music, then.”
As I spent time with the Beatles, Paul was the most overtly warm and friendly. He was singing a few bars of Michelle when I took this picture from a few feet away. Jane Asher was with Paul in Rishikesh, and he said that she inspired some of his most beautiful love songs.
The Beatles opened a door in my psyche. It was a key moment in my life. John was singing Tomorrow Never Knows, and as the lyrics sank in, I knew they were telling me of a journey I had not yet made—of an internal place that held great love and knowing. I love this picture for John’s intensity, a hallmark of his immense talent.
John and Paul were singing a variety of songs that I recognized as I sat with them.
After snapping the first frame, ‘Jamming’, John began to smile at me. Pulling the focus to Paul was my way to balance the emphasis between these two superstars.
I’ll always love the Beatles. Not just for their music, and the joy and love they transmitted, encouraged, and heralded, but also, as individuals I had the good fortune to meet and like and enjoy. Thank you John, Paul, George and Ringo.
George spoke softly, “Like, we’re the Beatles after all, aren’t we? We have all the money you could ever dream of. We have all the fame you could ever wish for. But it isn’t love. It isn’t health. It isn’t peace inside, is it?”
