Marky Ramone Recalls Disappointing John Lennon Encounter

(Classic Rock) Marky Ramone has recalled his disappointment at meeting a drunk John Lennon in New York. The iconic rocker met the Beatles star in a nightclub, but didn't get the chance to speak to him about music as the alcohol had been flowing freely all night.

Ramone tells The Metal Voice: "I wish I could have met John Lennon under different circumstances, where I could have hung out with him and talked about music, but he was pretty inebriated.

"He came down the stairs of the 282 Club New York city, which is a well-known club, an after hours place, with a friend Bob Gruen. And he came down the stairs, tripping over the stairs and there he was and there I was."

Ramone tried to chat to Lennon, but only received a mumbled response. "Then I left," he adds. Read more and watch the full interview here.
