SUNN......John Lennon with Chuck Berry
« on: April 23, 2017, 08:36:30 pm »

So....the day Lennon met Berry, the bass player was using a SUNN 2000S rig.

Looks like Elephants Memory, the band that backed Lennon on many of his NYC era preformances and recordings.

Special Note:  That famous quote that has been attributed to Lennon of "If they gave rock & roll another name it would be Chuck Berry" from this appearance and is actually READ BY LENNON OFF A TELEPROMPTER. So, while he said it, it appears to. Ot have actually been his words.

Also of Note: John Lennon and Chuck Berry are both dead, yet Yoko lives on. UGh!!

Thank God someone had the foresight to kill Yoko's mic for Johnny B. Goode. They say Love is Blind; in John Lennon's case I think it must have been deaf also...  :-D

It's hard to see, but it also looks like there's another Sunn rig off to the right of the screen.
