Culled from a Lennon website...

John n Klaus cooking and talking music in Dakota

Roughly about forty-five minutes. Brown rice needs much longer than that bleached white stuff.” John’s eyes sparkled with enragement.“Did you know that you get depressions from white rice? Did you? I’ll give you this book called Sugar Blues. I promise you when you read this book, you won’t touch a piece of sugar again. The kids in school should be forced to read this book. They try to manipulate us all and make us sick. This time the sweet way.”
I changed the subject to talk a little about music for a change. “Oh Klaus, it’s not like it was anymore. There’s no balls in all that stuff any more. Listen to our Bob Dylan. All he does is love songs: ‘lay across my big brass bed’ and such! Where is the message? Where is the revolution? We all have a vocation, a duty!” John very excitedly wiggled around with his cooking spoon.

Ever wondered how the Fab Four might have made their White Album with today’s technology? Wait no longer

Simply put, The White Album remixes are a marvel — ... they might be more properly enjoyed in your living room, where you can fully lose yourself within the album’s mesmerizing sonic embrace.

Oh Yoko!!!

"The two years before I met Yoko, I think the others were on to the same thing. We all went through a depression after Maharishi and Brian died; it wasn’t really to do with Maharishi, it was just that period. I was really going through the “What’s it all about?” type thing – this songwriting is nothing, it’s pointless, and I’m no good, I’m not talented, and I’m shitty, and I couldn’t do anything but be a Beatle. What am I going to do about it? It lasted nearly two years and I was still in it during Pepper. I know Paul wasn’t at that time; he was feeling full of confidence, and I was going through murder around those periods.

I was just about coming out of it around Maharishi, even though Brian had died – that knocked us back again. Well, it knocked me back. But I’d just about got my confidence, then. With the acid trip scene, I went through that “get rid of your ego” bit. I really had a massive ego three or four years after acid. I spent the whole time trying to destroy my ego, which I did, until I had nothing left. I went to India with Maharishi and that, and he was saying, “Ego is good as long as you look after it, don’t destroy it at all.” But I’d really destroyed it, and I was so paranoiac and weak I couldn’t do anything. I’d really done a good job on the ego, and I was just about building it back up again when I met Yoko. It literally went in weeks. I was just trying to work it back again and get confidence in myself. Then we met Derek again after a long time, and Derek did a good job on building the ego one weekend at his house. Reminding me of who I am and what I’ve done, what I could do. He just reminded me of who I am. Him and a couple of friends did that for me – they said, “You’re great, you are what you are and you’re infinite,” and all that. The next week Yoko came down to Derek’s. That was it; then I just blew out. […]

The things were coming out, and [Yoko] came and opened the door a little bit: “I love you for what you are, whatever it is.” And I respected her genius. For her to love me was the answer then. She wouldn’t have loved a dummy, which I’d begun to think I was. That helped – the accumulation. I was just out of it then."

"Love has to be nurtured like a very sensitive animal because that’s what it is. And you have to work at love. You don’t just sit round with it and it doesn’t just do it for you. You’ve got to be very careful with it. It’s the most delicate thing you can be given." ~JL
