Watch the beginning mini interview. Is it just me, or does Lennon and that other guy seem to be "hittin it off" so to speak?

Is Lennon gay or something...or this a joke?

Maybe they were/are just friendly guys. I'm pretty sure john lennon was fairly in touch with himself, plus he had a wife.

And if he was gay/bi, why would it matter? Would you stop listening to his music? Stop learning his songs? Think of him as a bad song writer?

uhhh NO. I wasn't implying anything by posting this. I was just curious cuz I thought he was married, which he was, so I didn't think he was gay. I would DEFINITELY NOT stop listening to someone just because of their orientation.

So you assumed I didn't listen to it? Wow, lots of assuming going on here. I watched it and thought it was amazing.

And they just seemed really close and emotional. And now that I think about they probably were high. So I'm very sorry for offending you Lennon fanatics.

I love this version, great stuff. But anyways, how can you not recognize Mick? I think it's pretty obvious that they are friends and just joking around. And I don't think Lennon was bi.....

What about that whole thing with Brian Epstein that one time? It was in anthology book or The Beatles book where they went to spain or something and something happened between them.

EDIT: and they were most definitely high in that video.

Anybody know what Im talking about though? John Lennon...Brian Epstein...on vacation in spain or somewhere....they got curious..........

It was in the anthology book or something

By the way Brian Epstein was most definitely gay and he adored john so he would definitely be willing......................................................................

Alright, fine, here it is. John Lennon was known to have homosexual tendancies. As mentioned, him and Epstein supposidly did some stuff. But, it really makes no difference. We all knew Lennon was a weird character. With all the girls adoring him for so long, its not really a suprise that he got curious. Might have got tired of all the women.
#17
that guy!? That is Mick Jagger. To address the Brian Epstein thing, I've heard that, but the books I've read on the band and Lennon himself seem to suggest that it never happened. He did go on a holiday alone with Brian once (right after Julian was born I think), but according to anybody who knew John nothing really happened, even though whenever Paul is asked about it, he responds by saying, "oh, that gay thing.", and that John was really touchy about it (he actually got in a fist fight with a friend for mentioning it). Actually, if you listen closely to "Baby You're a Rich Man" you might catch a bit of a bash on Brian Epstein's.. preference which I can't repeat here.

Yeah I'm not bashing the guy, makes no difference to me, and we all know he got more ass (from women) than everybody on UG combined x 5, but I'm just wondering if anybody knew what im talking about. I know theres no actual proof too...so. Yeah, and john gave brian so much **** about him being gay, its part of what drove him into depression and drugs which eventually killed him.

Oh, and:

this is unbelievable! this would be blasphamy where I come from... ok first off, it's John Lennon and Mick Jagger in the late 60's (68ish, considering the white album/lennon hairstyle.)...... they are SOO obviously stoned out of their trees! To me it seems more like two brits joking than homosexual implications.
As for the Epstein thing, its all a matter of judgement I guess, no one ever accused lennon, it was rumored, he denied it.. take it for what it is.

It was the 60s.

And they were rock stars.
