John Lennon and Paul McCartney rare 1969 photograph found

Friday, August 02, 2013

A rare shot of John Lennon and Paul McCartney singing together at the time of the Beatles' demise has been found. The photograph was taken at the 1969 recording of The Ballad of John and Yoko at Abbey Road Studios in London. The song was released in May of that year and became the band's last number one single.

Merseyside author Dean Johnson, who has revealed the shot in a book, said it showed a "sad epitaph to the greatest musical partnership". Mr Johnson was sent the photo by a Beatles fan after appealing for unusual and rare images of the band on Facebook. He said he had seen "nearly everything" to do with the Liverpool group, but had "never seen" the shot of John and Paul. "The Ballad of John and Yoko was a unique session as only John and Paul took part and, in a way, was a sad epitaph to the greatest musical partnership in pop history."
