The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

This is a Unique Problem--So We Need a Unique Solution
"Well. Thank you all for joining. I am really excited to talk to each of you because this conversation is really important especially as we move into the holidays and to start JJ often talks about how one of the things we do is often sort of a school house rock just defining our terms and sort of getting on the same page. So to that and I was wondering if we could talk about what suicide is it's mainly what is something that every American should know about that's quite a question. Yeah, right. Well, it's interesting. I I found myself sort of stunned by the question frankly because it's such a question. Yeah. It's such a huge sort of waited question. But I guess I would say first and foremost suicides an epidemic. I mean, I think it's a massive public health problem in our country and log Those of us that care greatly about veterans and about the military connected Community. It is a major and and really important problem in in those communities and one that people smartest people in the world have been trying to figure this out for a while and I think we're finally starting with all these conversations coming together. I think we're finally starting to potentially knock on some wood here. We're potentially maybe getting to this point where we're going to be able to crack this a little bit. I'm feeling thoughtful about it about about our ability to potentially make make a dent in that sat at last and in my comments are really a follow-on to this, you know, my my answer to talk to Americans need to know about suicide is how complex it is that it is massively complex and we haven't figured it out, which is essentially what Heidi just said and I agree. There's there's reason Hope we're really bad at predicting it right we could we can list off 12 or 16 warning signs. And then we can acknowledge that there are hundreds and thousands and innumerable warning signs that there's no definitive list. There are a lot of warning signs and none of them accurately predict who will die by Suicide. So that's one piece that that needs to be said, it's really complicated and we haven't fully figured it out yet. The other thing that needs to be said is we are getting closer to how to knowing how to treat it that we do know that we do have methods that prevent suicide that treat suicide and that's that's just as important as figuring out how to predict it right? I mean, even if we can't predict it we can prevent it. I mean both of those things actually can go together and one of the ways that song We know we can prevent it is through I mean, I'm kind of jumping to the chase here, but you know, lethal means safety and how to store Firearms is a reliable valid way to prevent suicide so I don't need to mean to blow past these other important more general questions, but that's a really important thing that I think we need to say up front. I don't know that we saved up front all the time. One thing. I think a lot of people don't know is that if you do limit access to a a method that someone was planning to use them and does not go on to find a different way. This is I think I teach this when I teach it and I I am baffled by the number of people in my audience have no idea about that. I think that is a that is a math out there that people will find a way if this is where they are and that's just the literature just doesn't back that up. So yeah, just just kind of reinforcing what Ted just said Thursday. To take a related but a little bit similarly different track. I think something that's often a misnomer is that suicide isn't a individual problem or a just a mental problem or just a clinical problem either? I think we need to this goes I think to some of what he was talking about it being an epidemic in a Public Health crisis and that way that it is a it's an American problem and it needs American Solutions in that in terms of like it's a public problem that needs public Solutions and both in the fact that suicide doesn't just impact the individual who has taken their life it you know, I think readers shows that for every every time an individual takes their life. It's your there are a hundred plus people who are directly impacted by wage loss of that individual and I think when we were talking about some communities in particular that makes it even more of a, you know, bigger bigger ripple effect of communities like the military Community, for example It's so important what you just said because another myth is that suicide is just about depression and therefore the domain of psychologists or the mental health field, but we know that that's not true. There are different studies and research and populations and etc. Etc. And anywhere between 50 and 90% We don't need to get into a specific statistic other than to say about half of at least about half of the people that died by Suicide do not have a diagnosable mental illness, which means it's about something besides mental illness suicide remains a problem. It doesn't mean that mental health professionals can't help those people also, but we have to look elsewhere besides just professional Mental Health Providers to solve this problem. It's a much bigger problem than I mean we know this that if you treat if you just give people treatment for depression, we don't address the issue. Problem of suicide the suicide numbers don't go down. So we have to look at other ways to address the problem of

Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time.

Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize. I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
Remembering when Howard Cosell announced he death of John Lennon
"Time out, is called three seconds remaining. John Smith is on the line and I don't care what's on the line. Howard, you have got to say way. No in the booth. Yes, we have to say it. Remember, this is just a football game. No matter who wins or loses and unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City. The most famous perhaps of all of the Penis, shot twice in the back, rushed the Roosevelt Hospital dead on arrival. Hard to go back to the game. After that news flash, which in duty bound we have to take Right I need it is remember remember watching watching that that money money night game because I'm the oldest of 45 in here. I remember that when Howard Cosell reported that Mark David Chapman had murdered John Lennon in front of his apartment in New York. And wow, There was no social media back then. But the outpouring of great people were devastated. Devastated. Remember Princess Diana? Member seeing people lined up on Michigan Avenue. They were having some type of a memorial to her in Chicago because she had been here over at Northwestern and this one, and when Elvis that, like those three stick out in my mind, remembering those being announced Am I? Harry Carey, talking about the death of Elvis and crying. Harry and Elvis were tight. And you had John Lennon and this one. It was unbelievable. I know for those who have never heard that clip. They say. You know, Howard Cosell just can't kind is barreling in with the news. You gotta understand that Howard had no finesse. Like that voice and the the cadence. That's who he was. You would think you know, Living more somber, You know, eh, Frank? We've got some sad news, but he did the way he did it. You know if you hear the way he did, as on arrived, yes, that he comes barreling in with the news. But that's who Howard Woz, and so it actually is more jolting when he gives the news. And you know, Howard puts it in perspective, though. I gotta give him credit. He says just a football game. But I got you this news, Frank back to you. And I know you know what Franklin for does after that, That's gonna be tough hearing that news because of just how How much the Beatles and how much John Lennon meant in that era. No question. Do you know it's crazy, but that's so hard. He brings up the game right, so there were three seconds left in the game at that point. It was Patriots Dolphins. The scheme was tied at 13, and they sent in Patriots kicker John Smith Toe win the game. This is Howard Cosell makes the announcement three seconds left. Here comes the kicker Patriots kicker John Smith to kick the game winning field goal and it was blocked.

Ending Gun Violence in America is About Changing Attitudes
"Wanna ask you know in the sixties growing up. We lost chaff k. We lost our. We lost martin luther king. We lost the people. We spoken about tonight. You know nine thousand eight hundred. I also lost my great aunt. I was in florida on vacation between college and law school and had lunch with her and then she went on her way to another part of the state where she was killed when they entered her hotel in criminal. Senator hotel room shot through the door behind the door. We have averaged people being killed. We have famous people being cal. We have children at schools being killed whether it's connecticut or florida and we have people being shot down every day in the inner cities another small towns and throughout our country counties cities people who turned to violence and guns to solve their problems at there at the first sign of a problem often so beyond the laws you know i hope that as we move forward were also able to try to find a way to reach into communities are reaching their families and educate people and give them alternative ways to solve their problems rather than violence and guns to prove that they're macho. Were a powerful or just to use them to make a point. We have to change the attitudes in our country to not just the laws
"john lennon" Discussed on Red, Blue, and Brady
"That's what happens to public figures that you have people who try to harm you and so i think we start to see this this very violent shift involving involving public figures in firearms and so i to make them this sort of ramble into a two part question chris. I'm i'm wondering what it's like for you to sit in go and then just a few months after we have this public outcry we then see jim brady shot and when he does pass his death is ruled a homicide from that Initial shooting and then on of your end michael. You know what. What do you think if. I don't want to ask you to speak for john lennon because that's an incredibly unkind thing to do anybody. But what do you think you know. Even sort of his reflection might have been based on just a lot of the writing that he did so really unfair questions to both of you. I know but i have a microphone. So i feel like i have power in forty years. Obviously all of us remember who were alive which means that some of on this program are excluded where we were at. The seminal history. I remember like michael exactly wrong. When i learned that john lennon shot and i remember exactly why i learned that ronald reagan angiography and others whose names are often. Okay we're author shot and those kinds of summation resonate in public consciousness here. erica globally. We have people on the you remember where they were in italy. Learn and all kinds of places because we haven't uniquely american epidemic and it persists today. The only thing that i can say about that. I hope get some people hope about wearing tom. And the commitment of many pack suffered the worst. And not gonna inspired me is that we have eagle among us in this movement. Who suffered grievous injury. Her riddick loss of people they love and they will never get them back but just like sarah every day and they try to make it to the german. They're currently. I'm elected individual. Who committed their. Why give the enactment of a law benefit people they never met and i think when you look at the call the gun mile like so many other while like many other causes out there there is no one as a dealer solution is solution. It's a multiple pronged. The lucia the fact that the public health and it needs to be treated the same way when we have carpet holiday right and people were dying. We didn't look to say well. It will work or is it airbag or not wearing as rail on the highway or make people wake crossing lane. They yeah let's do all of those because the point did we want to say as many lives as possible and a thing is true. Here we accomplish right thing. We still have a real problem. There's no doubt that he helped at the federal and with your mind in offense are really where better position on a number of things including and they different but we everyone's you a fair and he leaders in steakhouses. Thank you senator road for what you've done to really push us because a huge amount of work will happen in a state and is happening in the early nineteen were about here that revenue humna working those in last two years that pretty amazing and in a number of state where we had republican wanted and republican governor. Hope for the future of florida's one of those states chris and nationally if we can get a law to provide federal grant money to the states to encourage incentivized passing this law and give them some resources to promote it. The way carl spoke about it. They don't have the money in hawaii..
Taking On Gun Laws in Hawaii
"Two. We're going back to the idea of an urpo law or protection law. He only purchase the gun for the purpose. He said quite explicitly of committing this crime. He bought it six. I believe only six weeks before he went to new york the first time so again you have him telling his wife about this where she could now. In very specific places under specific rulings could go in front of a judge. And say this is. The situation could call on foresee. This is the situation. He just purchased a gun. This is what he's saying but unfortunately at the time and in many states still there's very little option that she had there. And why would you not want to prevent that kind of violence ever. Why would you not want to have a legislative legal path for somebody to say. This person is told me they are. They're intending to commit murder with this gun. Call that's a. That's a great segue for carl who wanna get involved in this conversation. It's talked about half cited to bring the law to fruition in. And how it's working out. I think it's What i've learned about guns over the years it's the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line. And there's a lot of beard non-linear ironies about what what is actually useful. what's not and just starting with what we think it was. Kelly talked about that. We've already talked about in. This conversation is having a gun in many cases actually more dangerous than not having a gun. Now it's not always true. And that's what makes setting policy for for firearms or a difficult because there's definitely an urban rural split where there are things that you were. You need a gun in the country that you really don't in the city and in the city they're not really used for much of anything except for senseless murders with the exception of You know sony breaks into your apartment in the middle of the night. I would certainly feel like your new justified in shooting them but so there there's a lot of there's a lot of non air guns aren't always bad but i agree that there should be. There is if you've already pointed out in many states is Red flag flag laws. That at least give a person a fighting chance to There's still a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean if his white. If i don't i don't even know his name the campaign not to give a elicits. People who've killed people with guns is work. Because i don't even know the guy's name you'd know i rosa but anyway if his if that law if the law that we have now had been in effect then they're still. It was still a little bit of a long shot that anything would have happened but at least if you have it. There's a chance there's a chance that someone says wow that's that's really kinda bonkers we better. We better contact better. Find an attorney. Who can file petition and see guns takeaway temporarily until this mood passes or until he's gotten help so it's not there's no panacea there but one of the reasons i supported was i thought actually passed when we pass the bill in hawaii. I didn't realize that it was much more effective against suicide than it is for other of for other killings even for non suicides it gives people who want to intervene who who loves somebody enough to intervene. Don't want them to go kill somebody. It gives them a chance. And i think that's why it's important. Can i ask a question that car that kelly asked or brought up earlier mind. How did you balance freedom right because this is the endless debate that we all encounter my freedoms and my freedoms are absolute and calculated in the context obviously of new york city and personal freedom. But i'm curious how you legislatively balanced individual freedoms or rights with public safety here is it was debated and what we finally settled on. Was the first motion that you make as many of your lawyers and experts say motion which means the other party doesn't have to be there. You just go straight to the judge. So we'd put up the final version of the bill puts in a provision that says you can file an exporting worship motion which means you don't have to talk to the person that's about but that only lasts for fourteen days and within fourteen days you go in you have to serve the they have to serve the parties you know as a gun who's were concerned about and then the judge will get testimony from both sides and make a decision from there so the the the short answer is due process. No constitutional right is absolute. But if you're going to take away. Generally you have to have due process and that's how we worked in the due process in this situation.

"john lennon" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"Welcome back to the. What difference does it make. Podcast and our tribute and acknowledgement of the anniversary of john lennon's assassination grin is the famed rock photographer. And also the author of a new memoir place right time but also a good friend of the lennon's i mean took some family photos and then you you were entrusted in nineteen eighty two kind of at the record plant and you recorded like all this. It was secret the said this double fantasy record in summer. It was a told secret. Didn't know where they were going with it and they didn't want any interruptions. Are certainly there might press about it. They wanted to to work without the distractions. But but you know yoko jones. She said be ready for us to call you in july. But i can't tell you what it is like all you did it surprise you back in the studio no surprise me The whole world was waiting for them but I had actually done a postcode from johnson. My john lennon book. Also i don't even in the new york years The postcode during the time he was raising. Sean and on the front is a picture of two people in the newspaper. Who did and on the back was a picture of a brace sun. And just a self portrait of yokoun sean. And it just seemed like in. The news was a negative idea. And he and your sean sprite sunshine of life and that was a time when people say john lennon wise any working. That post really sums up why he was working and unfortunately is prophetically true when he did come back where we all know what happened now. This is forty years ago Where where were you at the time. in studio Around december six simple theft and we were up on night friday night until saturday morning and actually thursday night infighting night and i took some patients of them on the sidewalk in front of a record plan on forty fourth street. Saturday morning johnson. I'll see you later and his home at my darker monday night. Developing those issues china finished up in a rush into action supposed to see them. That might an shoulder patient. Before i went to voicemail. And i phone call that he had been shot and of course the first shot doesn't mean dead and then a friend of mine called up and city on the tv. That john was dead and now is the worst. Most prominent thing. I ever heard casino. What you can fix that. We can make that better since then. It's a such a sad endings. Essentially create story. But i'm trying to think about the forty years that we did have an all the art music that we got from john lennon and he did an interview november the month before he died with david sheff playboy magazine whose excess an interview and he talks about how he was feeling and what he learned. Well in the five years will raising show on and he learned about Healthy diet he learned actually unusually for john lennon. You learned about delayed gratification. He learned about the responsibility and the joy that comes from taking care of your family and he talks about all of that in the playboy interview on bringing up. Because that's going to be republished next month. I believe people want to know about john lennon. They can hear from john lennon in the plate. We into rather than hearing other people talk about it. You want to see my book. John on the new york years has some great stories in my new book. Out of you you portrayed that shift nicely to talked about him discovering the macaroni macrobiotic diet and and other healthy lifestyle choices. Like you're talking about. We did talk about it in a book a little bit very important. He went from being a drunk rock rockstar. In the beginning to being a responsible parent by the end it was a real chance for mason. Masonry learning process. It was very lovely the way you portrayed the friendship and getting to know them in the family really interesting. Yeah and you're still close with with yoko. And sean and all yeah. So that's wonderful. We also are talking with tim english. Who was kind of like us but a little bit older and was in college at the time and so he's going to tell his story of what went on at the time when he was in college. He's got a book out. It's called john lennon. Nineteen eighty playlist. Which is is kind of a cool premise. For the book he researched the music that john lennon was listening to in nineteen eighty documents of for us. And it's very interesting to see and it kind of gives you a. Oh window into. John lennon's musical preferences which was really nice. So holly have you read the aerosmith burke. We interviewed richard beanstalk. But you actually go through the book. I read the book and i looked at the book. I admired all the photos. The book is called. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. This is an updated edition in honor of their fiftieth anniversary. And yes i did read it. How about you yes. It's fun to look at. It's one of those things where you read it and then just a leisurely pace actually because there's so many great pictures and Mementos and just memories of aerosmith and you kind of go down the rabbit hole of like. Oh man i remember remember. This record was really fun and that you ranked pictures everything the memorabilia that ticket stubs. Everything was fabulous to look at but there were so many stories. There was some. It's illustrated history. But it is chock full of information about the band. It is kind of like when you get a cd. Set of a ban. Aerosmith is put out the box. And you open up. And there's a small booklet and you get you know maybe like forty pages of information and it kind of covers a little bit of the ban. This book covers everything. It's really great. I highly recommend you go out and pick this up at all. Your favorite independent bookstores. What is the name of this book again because this is a mouth bowl. It is a mouthful aerosmith. Fiftieth anniversary updated edition. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. Where were you in. Nineteen eighty on december eighth nineteen eighty dorm room in. Providence rhode island Watching monday night. Football and i was one of the worst nights in my life Devastated you howard. Cosell amman. deliver the news and you know sometimes do these things they say. Well he's been taken to the hospital and maybe he's got a ball through. And that was the case with michael jackson taken to the hospital but in this case just said that said he's do a at the hospital. So it's just a heartbreaking devastating Thing i think for anybody who was around. But especially if you were a beatles fan and a lennon like yeah It's amazing that that's the same story for for most beatles fans. I mean everyone discovered in the us. Everyone discovered the beatles on ed sullivan. Everyone was watching it celebrate. It seems like everyone was what at the time. One thousand nine hundred eighty. All of america watches monday night football. And that's really how everyone heard the story absolutely one of the things i tried to join. The focus provide a little background on the world of nine thousand nine hundred eighty and l. We said different world and a lot of ways some some way similar but as far as communication went. I mean you mentioned two things. Beatles on at solvent sixty four were seventy five million people watch. The only tv show gets set audience today as the super bowl. I mean there's no you couldn't replicate that even if you wanted to is just too much media and too many different options likewise nine thousand nine hundred eighty and i don't know we didn't why was we didn't have cable until a year or two later wanted to you're watching. Tv no confront attainment Monday night you had five or six choices. One of which was monday night. But also i mean it was just a very different If you wanted to hear a song you love at that time you had to turn on the right to go out and buy it or turn on the radio and that they might have some so you know pretty younger readers especially i tried to show you know. Different was and a long time ago now..

"He said in interviews later a fusion of his mother and the love of his life in that moment is a lot to be read into that it was kind of a saying goodbye to Julia and welcoming this new person. Who really could I think he transferred onto this person? And Yoga was this combination for him of love her mother which in as you mentioned about Julia Heaves never really able to make that distinction with our so. He gets together with Yoko and they start collaborating. If you will and they also do something else he reads a book about primal scream therapy and he asks the author to come treat him. The author does the end result. Is You're supposed to scream or physically and vocally release your suffering and the agony that you feel but in that you are made to think about deliberately and talk about and process and consciously register the things that were traumas for you and that make you incredibly sad and so all of this material about his mother and feeling abandoned and his father and feeling abandoned and the chaos and the loss was something for the first time. He was not only allowed to confront he was made to confront. And think about. And then have this release and screaming. It's important because I think that the first album that he puts out with Yoko Ono the pasta last I go to ban does contain the song mother mother. You had me but I never had you. I wanted you. You didn't want me so I just got to tell you goodbye goodbye. Same verse about the father and then children don't do. Would I have done? I couldn't walk and tried to run so I just gotTa tell you goodbye goodbye and then this wailing of Mama. Don't daddy come home for the whole end of the song. And of course also the Song Julia specifically His mother so he emotes he processes and he releases these painful painful feelings. I would say it's like the first psychotherapy you know that John Lennon has in a way to really process what's happened and was tough because the primal scream therapy course required. I believe several months and they had to go out to California to to be treated and midway through. He was ordered to leave the country. So that the doctor would later say we took apart. We didn't put them back together and so he was incredibly raw and the result was this album which is just some of the most nakedly vulnerable music. I've ever heard I mean opens with a a funeral. Bell goes right into mother as you just said and it closes with a song called my mummy's dead. Which is made on a children's tape-recorder and it's just him kind of plain song singing with a plastic guitar. Mommy's dead it's all it's been so many years by Mommy's track after track is a song co working class hero. Were basically just visceral. Its Aunt Mimi and her ilk and all the people that tried to put them in a box when he just wanted to be free to think in a moat song called God God as a concept by which we measure our pain and then he basically goes through in the whole song majority of Song as him saying thinks he doesn't believe in and he just believe in Elvis. I don't believe in Bob Dylan. I don't believe in Jesus. I don't believe in the Buddha..

"He would call his fat Elvis period when he was indulging all the food all the women all the drugs. All the drink everything you can imagine he got into rock and roll to avoid convention in structure and suddenly he was more structured in reigned in than normal person through fame. I. It's a common thing to hear celebrities now but at the time. There's really no precedent for fame on that global scale and maybe Sinatra and Elvis and Glen Miller or something like that but they didn't know the part that you can't leave your house you you're you're stuck they get a hotel suite and they'd all be in the bathroom because it was the only room where they could get any peace you know. They'd all just hide in the big bathroom hotels sweet and just to hang out and be together so it was really tough for me. Found himself in a life that he didn't really want he somehow wound up in was called the London suburb. I call it the stockbrokers belt which is where all the rich people would get mansions outside of London. Which is not you know. I think a John Lennon you don't think of stock knackers. And he had this boring house and a boring suburb with a sorry pretty boring wife. Paul McCartney later say yes. Cynthia at the time will tell me that she really wanted him to. Just calm down and settle down in the pipe and slippers and he said that was when alarm bells went off in my head is. I know that's not the John Lennon that while she wanted him to stop doing drugs definitely wanted him start being around his son but yes she was she was not sort of intellectually and artistically perhaps a good match for him he didn't like performing and having this public public life on the one hand on the other hand dig give him some structure some reason to get up in the morning and do something as opposed to later after they stopped and he was really rudderless and and didn't know what he was going to do with his life but then there's this important juncture where their fame grows so huge that at some point. John makes the statement while the Beatles were like bigger than Jesus and this is not taken well internationally speaking. No he talking to a journalist who was a very close friend of his. He was being sarcastic. He's he was kind of saying what's wrong with the church there. You know the Beatles bigger than Jesus right now they gotta do more. It was printed in in a very large interview in England in March. Sixty six and no one picked up on. It is just one wine very massive interview and then it got printed in the United States out of context an American Teen Magazine. It was called datebook out of context. The pills are bigger than Jesus. Obviously pretty inflammatory Without everything around that kind of describing his argument in his point. It kinda hit right when the ban. We're going on tour in the United States in nineteen sixty six and of course that would take them right through a South Bible belt and it was really pretty horrific you had clansman out front of the arena. The death threats. They had people lighting firecrackers in the middle of their shows. And there's footage of I think in Memphis. Somebody lit a firecracker onstage and you see all the Beatles turn to one another to see who got hit. There'd be bullet holes in the fuselage of the planes. They were taking i. It was really are really terrifying. And of course Jon had to be shoved out from David landed in southern city insured. Said Son John I. He's the one they want and he went to the Philippines. Where of course I mean you know the ship. At completely Christian country people were horribly upset and actually unrelated that they that was before the whole Jesus thing that was actually a few months before and they went and they inadvertently snubbed the marcus from Marcus. For whatever reason they didn't attend this lunch with Fernando Melda Marcus and you don't turn down an invitation from the dictatorship and so all of a sudden all the police support which they desperately needed because fans was removed creepy. Things like they'd arrive at the airport and right when they get on the escalator. The escalator returned off angry. Very Pro Marcus. People would attack them at the airport and of course they had no police support so they just covering themselves with guitar cases. John did not enjoy performing when there was so much shrieking and screaming that he could really not even here himself to say we could've been waxworks for all the good we did not know. Couldn't nobody heard anything was a freak show and he felt like a performing flea instead of a an artist or not even an artist. Not even a musician. Just sort of freak. Which is something you probably felt all through his Childhood in Liverpool and I don't think he really relished feeling that way again. Well you know. It's interesting he did feel like a freak in the sense that he made many comments about saying that he saw the world differently than anybody else he knew and I think he describes that both in a alienating way like I feel so alone because no one else sees things the way I do but it also gave him sense of specialness. Oh Yeah you'd always as a kid. He said he was used to wonder a my insane or my genius. He would read biographies of Van Gogh and James Joyce and Oscar Wilde and Dylan Thomas and it would make him feel better because even see psychedelic visions were were reality to me and so when the whole LSD thing hit it was kind of comforting to him because it was more how we saw the world than the average person. Yeah you're interesting and so this being under a microscope and being the life of the band on the one hand being recognized as being special again right emptying loved in this overwhelming way probably filled certain psychic need for him but at the same time being dogged every moment it's a double edged sword the other side of intense love or overvaluation is devaluation and hate and that is a good part of what happened. Sort of in the later life of the Beatles there was a lot of devaluing and hating and an attacking and in a frightening way for someone who has seen a lot of mortality of young people in his young life so it must have been really terrifying. I'm sure and I. It contributed a major way to them. Stopping touring which removed a lot of stress from his life but he was also completely rudderless. He spent his days at his Suburban estate just wake up in the middle of the afternoon. He said he would just be eating. Lsd Like it was candy. He had a mortar and pestle by his bed that he would just grind up random pills and make an uber pill and just take Z. What would happen and he would just watch. Tv and just kind of zone out and a crucial song of this period. I think is Good Morning Good Morning On such pepper. Because it's just it's about him watching. Tv Good Morning. Good morning was a cornflakes theme and it's just about him watching afternoon soap operas and Nothing to do to save his life saying why. Then it's a very interesting song when you actually look at lyrics and and know what it's about it's just it's almost like nowhere. Man is just the guides. And nihilistic song about a guy who's nothing to say but it's okay so it's interesting so in reference that time period and sergeant pepper. Many people try to understand what Lucy in the sky with diamonds? What was that about? What really informed that? Of course there are millions of theories and so on but he himself says even though people keep saying Oh lucy in the sky with diamonds obviously. Lsd This must be about LSD song..

"The Beatles have been stamos in a way that few others can even imagine existing in a rapidly changing time period when a new era of rowing globalization and increased communication.

There are songs that clearly belie some of this emotional longing emotional difficulty and trauma along the way. Yeah it's funny going through Jones story kind of in a Lotta ways the most boring period when you actually get down to the emotional. Graf of it are the Beatlemania years because he actually just felt like he was asleep for most of it a lot always he was. He said he just was miserable. And he would site help as the first real song ever wrote because it was actually coming from him as a cry for help.

"John can't remember words to save his life. He's he's more big picture. Paul learns the Solos learns the words and so that kind of made him. You Know Super Super Respect Paul. Like the fact okay. He's good he's real good and he proved himself in that moment in a way that really no one else. I think in John's life at that age did and so from that point on they were bonded. Musically and Paul had lost his mother a few years earlier to cancer when he was fourteen and John was say to him at this point. I'm like how can you just exist? Normally when your mom's dead like if something like that ever happened to me I would completely go crackers. I would lose my mind. I can't believe you you continue to function. Obviously in a way prophetic not long after he went to Julius House. John Julius House. To go see her she wasn't there she was actually a Mimi's house they just missed each other. Julia and Mimi would have like sort of a weekly not did repaired. The relationship a little bit and Julia was leaving. Mimi's house was crossing a busy street in front of her house and a car came instructor to things that are just if not when we think later again about. John Lennon's music and lyrics. She was struck by an off duty. Police officer who was only twenty four. Actually who actually apparently only had a learner's permit and so there were a lot of questions as to whether his mother was in the wrong in that moment or whether it was something that the driver did but also important that she was taken to the hospital. Because Mimi heard the accident she was alive apparently when she was taken to the hospital but died and it was a police officer who then came and told John at the home what had happened and his interaction with police so to speak here is set in a certain kind of way in terms of being notified and being responsible for the death but subsequently finding that it was the fault of his mother and questions about that. His immediate reaction was stunned and then remarkably non-emotional Moore. Everybody's reaction was remarkably non-emotional in fact the attempt to repress everybody's response to Julia's death. She has two daughters. The daughters are shipped away and told at time that they're shipped away for a long period of time and Mimi doesn't have much of an emotional response. This is sad but life goes on the husband similarly seems to not have that much of an emotional reaction. He outraged John. I guess one of his first reaction was who's GonNa look after the kids and John Selfish Guy can't believe that's what you know that he never forgot that completely outraged him he again doesn't have like a vehicle. An Audience Support Group to really grieve with undoubtedly. This may have furthered his bond with Paul McCartney who as you said had lost his mother and somebody that he could be with who maybe would understand at least when it was like as you say. I mean you're right. No one is media. Family really was able to provide the support system interest even sort of more cruel. The accident happened right outside of his bedroom window. Basically he wasn't specifically told that but he worked it out where it would have happened so it was a sort of a constant reminder of this gaping hole in his life and you write a he and Paul a lot went unspoken but it was definitely a bond they shared and it was something that they knew each other understood and that was kind of enough that there is somebody else there who got it. I don't think there are too many instances of them actually having heart to hearts about it specifically had no heart to hearts about the point that he really he didn't process it he didn't you know we think about like. How do you deal with grief? And there's no question but that John Lennon repeatedly said this was the biggest trauma of his life. This was the biggest loss of his life. No doubt made much much more so by the fact that he constantly had this longing for his mother who kept disappearing and reappearing but now he she had reappeared. He was with her and this abrupt loss. That you can't come back from right. You can't get back together again. After death and the ability to process grief usually is in talking about it and being able to think about it and being able to express it and it seems that was something that he couldn't do for the collection of reasons of who was around him time that they were who he was who he was already right his style of already dealing with everything which was to be highly defended and highly repressed and so he doesn't resolve this. It's important in the sense that in numerous songs. Typically you know Song Julia Mother that he writes these lyrics. That are just a call your name. You're not there. Was I to blame for being unfair. Always said later on you. I mean that's an early song of his. But he always said. There was a lot in those words that he don't. I don't think he even consciously realized name.

"Now very soon. And that's how you were supposed to behave. Of course we know that you know feelings. Don't disappear just because you've repressed them and in fact in some ways when you repress them they have even more power to influence behavior and feeling states and in that sense all of this chaos and Tom moulton abandonment and then loss as John headed into his teenage years. He became by all accounts increasingly angry rebellious misbehaving aggressive and so he's described as a teenager in school as someone who originally was doing well a student in grammar and middle school clearly bright a really promising student now he heads into high school and he's cutting classes fights starting fights right he's he's having physical fights very vitriolic with all kinds of people like just really says terrible and biting and crass things to push people away again defensively not unusual style for someone who has struggled with a lot of ambivalent attachments to people. This is the point I want to make when you have a young childhood where it's not you're just abandoned and left but in fact you go back and forth you attach but you never know if that person to whom you've gotten all of these warm attachment feelings is going to stick around. You could suddenly be dropped or abandoned at Habit. Go back and forth you develop. What will be an important? Psychologists called an avoidance ambivalent attachment style. And what that means is more than the average person you long for attachment. You desperately need and want someone to be that person. That's with you all the time but at the same time you have a great paranoia and a great fear that at any moment that will be ripped out from under you and so people like that often appear highly neurotic intimately struggled with depression terrible anxiety lots of jealousy and lots of aggression and so that is what we start to see as John Lennon becomes a teenager that he starts to behave this way toward friends supposedly or you know Mates in school Let Me Aunt Mimi. And that is not surprising given his background. Let's take a quick break here. We'll be back in a minute in a world where everyone is confined to their homes.
