John Lennon playing his 1961 Sonic Blue Fender Stratocaster (top six) which would not only be used during the recording of Nowhere Man, but as well as during the Sgt. Pepper (BL) sessions. The Sonic made very few public appearances, such as during a sound check in December ‘64 (BR).
One day late in 1964, John Lennon and George Harrison sent their roadie, Mal Evans, out to “get a couple Strats,” and came back from Grimwoods in Kent with two ‘61 models in a rare colour. Although a similar model with a maple fretboard is seen during the Imagine sessions, it is unknown today as to where the original is.

January: Straight. I really don’t have a preference or like a type. If I can have an ongoing conversation with a guy and I find him mildly attractive, that’s my type.
June: When Will The Heaven Begin: Ben Breedlove’s story
December: I have this really weird toe that kinda overlaps and I’m actually really self conscious about it and never show my feet. BONUS: I also have Megan Fox thumbs.
George Harrison and Ringo Starr, Rishikesh, India, 1968
"One moment remains etched in [Paul] Saltzman’s memory. ‘George was practising the sitar and it was just the two of us sitting together. George said - he said this without any ego, [he was] a very calm, very wonderful man - "Like we are The Beatles, after all, aren’t we? We have all the money we could ever dream of, we have all the fame you could ever wish for, but it isn’t love, it isn’t health, it isn’t peace inside, is it?"’
'The sentence George said to me impacted on me hugely so I have never forgotten that,' says Saltzman.” - The Telegraph India, 27 March 2005
