The Lost Lennon Tapes

In today's Syracuse Post-Standard, Sean Kirst recounts a night in October of 1971 when the Beatles (sans Paul) almost got together for a reunion concert in Syracuse. Lennon and Yoko Ono were in town for the opening of Ono's first major art exhibition, which was on display at Syracuse's Everson Museum of Art. Read Kirst's column here. Also check out the front page of today's paper (PDF). Make sure you read the "Art or Hokum?" editorial excerpted from the September 27, 1971 edition of the paper. The caption on the photo mentions that Lennon and Ono headed to the Onondaga Nation territory after their visit to support its efforts to keep Interstate 81 from cutting through their reservation. Apparently, they were unsuccessful.
