John Lennon - Calico, California, October 1973
"Once we’d had enough of Vegas, we drove back to LA. On the way, we came across an abandoned mining town called Calico, a real slice of Americana, right out of a history book or a Western.
In my pictures of John in Calico, you can see embroidery on his jeans - that’s because they were mine. One morning, John woke me up by saying: “I’m wearing your jeans!”
"So I see," I said. "Why?"
"Because they fit. I love them!" He never gave them back. I thought it wise to remove the butterflies and flowers I had sewn on them - remember, this was the Seventies.
As we wandered around Calico, John kept eyeing a Harley trike, so finally I said: “Just go over to it and I’ll take a picture.”
I took only a single shot which, fortunately, came out pretty well. After I took the photo, John joked in a Bogey-esque drawl: “Hop on, kid, let’s blow this joint.”
