It’s almost to good to be true, but lo and behold — My favorite band of all time were fans of my favorite TV show of all time!
As evidenced in this extremely rare photo from late 1966 – Paul is clearly giving the Vulcan Peace Sign as John looks on from their hotel window! I bet Trek was a huge factor in their creative drives that led to Sgt. Pepper the following year! Wow! Who’da thunk it???!
And by the way, if you haven’t noticed today’s date, better read the following words backward: LOOF LIRPA ! 😉 Gotcha! (This was hard to Photoshop!)
Today, October 9th, would have been the 75th birthday of John Lennon. What I wouldn’t give to hear his thoughts on the world today. Greatly missed. Not just for his music, but for his humanity. I hope he and George Harrison are celebrating. Here’s one of my favorites, enjoy:
I’m just in a silly mood tonight, kids…
With Humble Apologies to Ringo; You know I love you! xo
Well Kids, I was thinking about the greatest rock n’ roll band ever the other day and found myself combining my two favorite 60’s pop icons again…
Here’s the original!

Been looking over Beatle pics lately and came across the iconic portrait of John Lennon in a doorway in Hamburg,Germany around 1960, taken by his pal Juergen Vollmer. This photo was later used on Lennon’s 70s compilation, Rock n’ Roll Music. (1975) It reminded me of another picture of Nimoy as a greaser in the 1960 TV episode of Lock Up (The Case of Frank Crotty) –well…it seemed a natural fit, considering that these are two of my favorite people of all time. I bet they would have had a hell of a conversation! Call it an ultimate Beatle/Trek fantasy. Enjoy, Therese
