Kenwood: FJB 111C.

Various items relating to John´s psychedelic Rolls, often to be seen ferrying himself between Kenwood and central London in 1967. Also here, a short French feature with footage of the car, including the interior. John´s favourite song in the summer of 1967 was A Whiter Shade Of Pale by Procol Harum, and this would be played ad infinitum on the music system in the back.


  1. Do you have the shot of John underneath his Rolls Royce? That's a weird one, similar to the revolution in the head shot, except without the other three.

  2. Yeah, I know the one you mean. I do have it somewhere. Wasn´t it in the Beatles Book monthly? I´ll dig it out and post it at some point...

  3. The french feature is interesting - looks like a contemporary one, so John must have given his ok for them take a short ride and do some filming.
