Lennon's Lost Weekend

There's a new book out called 'Lennon Revealed'. Check out this excerpt which details Lennon's "Lost Weekend", his destructive 18 month period in LA with Harry Nilsson and Phil Spector. A lot of crazy shit happened, like Phil Spector chasing Lennon around with a gun. Yikes.

Lennon and Nilsson: "Ha ha, very funny Phil.... ummm...seriously, put the gun down..."

“Yeah, you’re some asshole with a Kotex on his forehead.” Too funny.

Also note:

"It was my first night on Brandy Alexanders, and they tasted like milkshakes. The first thing I knew I was out of me gourd."

So now we can see why I was trying to re-create the Brandy Alexander magic at the beach.

Me, I'd love to take 18 months off for a self-destructive binge. Who's with me?

Any drink that mostly Half & Half will make you go out of your gourd.

I just noticed something about that picture of Lennon and Nilsson...does Lennon have a sock in his pants? Or did he have a massive hog? I have to believe that's fake. Let's ask Yoko when we see her in Chicago.

Maybe it's Spector's gun.
