Robert Whitaker remembered John Lennon in Life Books “25 Years Later” which featured this image as its front cover.

“It Was John I felt quite at home with, and we got to be very friendly.  We’d talk about Dali or Magritte or other painters.  We used to paint together, discussing odd things–the solidity of objects here and in space.  I think that one had a bit to do with LSD”
