April 5, 2021

What was it like playing bass for John Lennon and Yoko Ono during New York City's most politically active days of the early 1970s? Gary Van Scyoc has all the true and unedited stories!!!

Gary was an integral part of the Plastic Ono Elephants Memory Band that backed John and Yoko on "Some Time in New York City" and performed live with them at the Filmore East, on the "Dick Cavett Show," the "Mike Douglas Show," and for Geraldo Rivera's "One to One" charity concert in Madison Square Gardens!

Gary talks about working with the unpredictable Phil Spector, the dedicated Ono, and most of all, with veritable "work horse," John Lennon, whose vision for "Some Time in New York City" was waaaay ahead of its day!! This is a fascinating interview between Lanea Stagg of The Recipe Records Series, Jude Southerland Kessler of The John Lennon and Gary Van Scyoc! Don't miss it!
