3 clips from Lennonyc

Rolling Stone Magazine has provided us with three further clips from the "American Masters - LENNONYC" TV Show, which is due out on TV November 22nd and on DVD November 23d. The Blu-Ray edition is planned for a January 2011 release. The full programme was shown for free at Central Park on Saturday in celebration of John Lennon's 70th birthday.
In these sections of the movie, you see footage of Lennon, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol hanging out as Lennon talks about first moving to Greenwich Village; Geraldo Rivera on the news report of his that inspired Lennon and Ono to stage the One to One benefit concert in 1972; and Lennon discussing, as he Ono walk through Central Park, why he moved to New York City after the break up of the Beatles. "I'm known enough to keep my ego floating, but unknown enough to get around," Lennon says of NYC life.
Here are the three clips:



Don't forget to listen to the podcasts related to this documentary, they are available on the official site of the documentary film.
LENNONYC features never-before heard studio recordings from the Double Fantasy sessions, never-before-seen outtakes from Lennon in concert and home movies that have only recently been transferred to video. It also features exclusive interviews with Ms. Ono, who cooperated extensively with the production and offers an unprecedented level of access, as well as with artists who worked closely with Lennon during this period, including Elton John and photographer Bob Gruen.
