Nothing Box: more nothing.

As a little addendum to the Nothing Boxes - more John with same, captured in 1965, by photographer Brian Duffy. Duffy recalled that John had just come back from the US, where he'd had his teeth "done", which supports the idea that he bought them (the Nothing Boxes, not his teeth - that would be ridiculous) whilst in the States. Note: in the last pic he's started doing that weird thing with his tongue that he did - possibly as a result of having his teeth fixed. See my forthcoming four volume study "The Tongue Movements Of John Lennon: A Four Volume Study". I jest (lest there be any doubt).
Duffy further recalled that John was "just like any nice, normal, intelligent person." Wot no "antics"?!


  1. oh please. There's no way you could do 4 volumes. I'm betting 2 at best.
    I have to say I've never seen these pictures.

  2. Sorry to chime in again, but these photos were October/November 65? He's got Rubber Soul hair.

    Aren't I a geek?

  3. let the 2 volumes begin! i had never seen all those pictures either, just one or two - nice!
