John Lennon: Rock ‘n’ Roll 1975 (c) Apple
In September 1974, May Pang attended the first Beatlefest convention at Lennon’s behest, and met Jurgen Vollmer, an old friend of the Beatles from Hamburg, Germany, who had photographed the band from their Hamburg days. He was selling some striking portraits, and Pang immediately phoned Lennon to tell him of her find. Reuniting with Vollmer in New York, Lennon chose one of his photos for the covers album.
The photo depicts Lennon in a doorway with three blurry figures walking past him in the foreground. Those figures are Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Stu Sutcliffe.
