Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


The Rock and Roll Circus - The Dirty Mac: Yer Blues

The Rock and Roll Circus - The Dirty Mac

The Rolling Stones got together with a few of their friends in 1968 to put on a show that would be broadcast later on TV as Rock And Roll Circus. Partying down were their groupies, roadies, knife throwers, tigers, midgets, and a few musicians whose names you may have heard before: The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal and Marianne Faithful (AKA Mick Jagger’s girl friend, AKA “big titted angel”). For the occasion, John Lennon put together a rather nifty group, The Dirty Mac, with Winston Leg-Thigh (Lennon), Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell (the drummer from The Jimi Hendrix Experience), and Keith Richards. Dirty Mac performed “Yer Blues,” a song John Lennon wrote for the Beatles White Album, on the air. Unfortunately, the only other broadcast work this incrediblysupergroup found was backing up Yoko Ono and violinist Ivry Gitlis on a “Whole Lotta Yoko,” Enjoy the video of “Yer Blues”..
