JOHN LENNON and The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr last saw each other a matter of weeks before the Imagine hitmaker was tragically shot and died. In an interview the following year, Starr reflected on their final meeting, which was immortalised in a photo.
Their time together that day was enshrined forever in a polaroid picture. In an interview with Barbara Walters the year after Lennon’s death, Starr recalled the final time he saw his friend. “I saw him on the 15th November,” he said. “I was staying at The Plaza.
“Oh, man, they were happy. They were two people in one,” he added poignantly.
