I've seen this interview on YouTube before(the extended also), and it's really great, I really like how George say's how he felt so small, like a grubby little kid looking up and saying, "Oh, hi Elvis." :smt103 They all show respect, and that's great!!!!! 8)

John Lennon, "Hound Dog" (Madison Square Garden, Wednesday, August 30, 1972)



Thanks Dr. John. I've always loved this clip and I love that John was, especially in the early days, a HUGE Elvis fan. As Aunt Mimi said he had Elvis for 'breakfast, lunch and dinner'. You gotta love Yoko (or maybe you don't). With all the flack she's gotten over the years I've never had a problem with her. After all, where would the B-52s have drawn their vocal inspiration from? 'Rock Lobster' and 'Private Idaho' have Yoko all over them.
