Notes: According to the writer, a "work of semi fiction... with one foot in reality". After an exclusive interview with Ringo, the writer loses his notes on the way home, and so
"makes up his own version" of the story. A very funny novel, full of inside jokes. Includes a hilarious account of the first Dylan meeting with Lennon/McCartney and their
collaboration on their unreleased classic "Pneumonia Ceilings" (below). Al Aronowitz, who was also there, has provided a somewhat different account of this event.

How come your xxxx mama types so fast?
Is daddy's flag flyin' at half mast?
Pneumonia ceilings, pneumonia floors
Daddy ain't gonna take it no more
Elephant guns blazing in my ears
I'm sick and tired of your applesauce tears!
Thermometers don't tell time no more
Since aunt mimi pushed them off the 20th floor
So say goodby to skyscrapers
You'll read about it xx in the evening paper
I picked xxx my nose & i'm glad i did
