The Altamont hangover is substantial, so just a couple quick items for today:

George played another show with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, this one in Croydon, south of London. I don’t know much about Croydon, except that it appears to be near Wimbledon, Bromley (childhood home of David Bowie), and Purley, which thanks to Monty Python I know as a place from whence women of loose morals are known to originate.

This was the tour’s last stop in England before heading to the Continent, so presumably they were circling back to London to catch a plane.

And speaking of Monty Python, this item from The Beatles Bible about today’s Lennon/Ono activities sounds very much like one of their sketches:

John Lennon and Yoko Ono took part in a televised debate on this evening for the BBC’s religious series The Question Why.

The debate was chaired by Malcolm Muggeridge, and largely focused on the subject of evil. The other guests were Henry Cecil, Gerald Cohen, David Cooper, General Sir John Hackett, the Reverend Christopher Neil-Smith, Paul Zeal and Canon Edward Carpenter.

That’s a hell of a name, Paul Zeal. I’d like to know more about the man who would have such a name. But a web search turned up only references to the zeal of St. Paul, which led to an article about how St. Paul was actually a heretic, which in turn led to one about how Jesus survived the crucifixion and went to live in Kashmir. Probably a sign that it’s time to get off the internet for a while.
