You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away

I’m reading the new John Lennon biography by Beatles historian, Philip Norman, a fascinating and deeply revealing insight into the strife and times of one of music’s truly significant icons. Wrapped up amongst the first person anecdotes, you get a real sense of this complex and somewhat traumatic genius who could have just as easily ended up languishing in a prison cell, such was the venom that often seeped from his angry young self. Of course, history has a habit of correcting itself, and Lennon went onto become part myth, part melodrama, full serving singer-songwriter for the ages. From all the many hours of archival Beatles footage, I love this clip in particular, which shows Lennon in fine health and, presumably, good spirits, while the other Beatles crack insidery jokes with raised eyebrows and funny jigs.
