John Lennon- RPS (Record Plant Studios) T-Shirt
On April 18, 1975, John Lennon appeared for the final time in front of an audience when he performed 'Imagine' at the New York Hilton Hotel. The evening was a Salute To Sir Lew Grade, the influential English show-business impresario, and other names on the bill that night included fellow Brit-in-exile, Tom Jones and Julie Andrews.
The RPS T-shirt featured a one off hand drawn logo for Record Plant Studios, created by Gary Kellgren one of the owners.
Earlier that year Lennon recorded Rock N' Roll at Record Plant in NY. A tribute cover album of the music he had grown up listening to. The album was produced by Phil Spector, and it was at RPS that Lennon met drummer Vinny Appice, who he asked to appear in BOMF, his backing band for the Hilton gig. Appice later played with Black Sabbath and Dio.
