I love to look at the people in the background of photos of the Beatles and I wonder what they are doing back there. Are they a fan? A passerby? Did they talk to the Beatle they are standing behind? Do they even know that they are in the background of a photo with a Beatle? Well I have the answers to one such photo. Do you see that guy in the background behind John's lawyer? Have you ever wondered who he was? Well wonder no more. That is Brian Cunningham. He is a John fan who happened to to the immigration office the day that John got his Green Card.
Here is what Brian had to say about meeting John and getting his autograph.
I grabbed his left am as he walked out and faced reporters and asked for his autograph! I then asked if that was Yoko next to him(please be advised I was as nervous as hell and didn't know what else to say). His reply was 'no, it's me mother!"
What a wonderful day in the life of John Lennon to meet him! And how neat to be in the background of a photo. Thanks goes out to Brian for sharing this photo and story.
