John by Astrid Kirshherr (photog.) after Stu's death. Stu was a beatle -- he played bass. Good friend of Johns. Paul played guitar. Stu quit Beatles & did ART again, he died of a brain anyeurism. John was very close friends w/Stu -- which is why it was almost impossible to fire him.
outside the studio where "Free as a Bird" was recorded the bird wandered in the shot at the last minute. Paul, “I said to the other guys, ‘That’s John!’ That’s John!’ Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around. We felt that all the way through the recording.”
