Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

The super group The Dirty Mac performed together only one time on December 11, 1968 for The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus TV special. This was the first time John Lennon performed without the Beatles. It’s nice to see the lad was able to muddle through somehow. =)

When I first heard “Yer Blues” I thought it was a parody. I thought John was mocking the whole blues culture notion that a song with a message of misery can make people feel better. Today I read that John said in a Rolling Stone interview that the song was not a parody. He said it was an actual reflection of his state of mind at the time he wrote it. All I have to say about that is “yipes!” Yoko “Destroyer Of Beatles” Ono has taken a lot of flack over the years. I’ve even made my fair share of jokes at her expense even though I really have nothing against the woman. But assuming she’s the “girl” mentioned in the song, she’s probably the reason we had John here with us as long as we did. I think we all owe her a big apology. I’m thinking giant cookie and balloon bouquet but I’m open to suggestions.
