How I Met the Beatles, Thanks to Dorothy

by Mr. Bonzai

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In September of 1967, I walked up to John Lennon's home south of London. John was asleep, but his housekeeper, Dorothy, let me wait in his garage until he awoke. John came out and invited me in. We spoke about meditation, movies, and music and he invited me to drive into London in his Rolls-royce, where I witnessed my very first recording session. It was "I Am The Walrus."
Description
In September of 1967, I walked up to John Lennon's home south of London. John was asleep, but his housekeeper, Dorothy, let me wait in his garage until he awoke. John came out and invited me in. We spoke about meditation, movies, and music and he invited me to drive into London in his Rolls-Royce, where I witnessed my very first recording session. It was "I Am The Walrus." 44 Years later, I read online about John's tooth coming up for auction, offered by the family of Dorothy, who was now 91 years old. I couldn’t believe it. She was the lady who altered my destiny, and she was still alive. We had our first meeting via Skype and I finally was able to thank her. Then she told me her story, which has never been published before, about life at home with John and his family, teaching John how to drive, and other anecdotes from back in the day.
