Is it me or does John look frail in that picture? Whats he weigh, a hundred pounds? I know I don't want to see him as a late Elvis, but I don't want another Karen Carpenter either.
I recall reading an interview with Yoko in which she said that John had always struggled with his weight and that he was finally happy with it not long before he died. Here's another pic from around the same sort of time.
I just seen this photo for the first time the other day and meant to put it up. It's of John with that CAR (candy apple red) strat he was using in that other pic of him in bed (1980) in the booklet of the Collection cd.
