Kenwood & Greece: July, 1967.




Two front pages from towards the end of July, 1967. Click on them to read the stories. John was off in Greece buying an island, and so not present for the delivery of the psychedelic caravan to Kenwood - unlike Mrs Kathleen Bolton, apparently. (Is it just me, or does the whole story, amusing though it may be, smack a little too much of "Please-Sir-Can-We-Have-Our-Ball-Back-ism"? Though perish the thought that the tabloids might have invented a story.) She was, it seems, "jeered at" by waiting teenagers, which I'm afraid raised a titter or two round these parts. The other "story" from a couple of days later isn't really, though it does feature a splendid picture of John, refulgent in Jesus Saves t-shirt, stuffing his face.
