He was truly a handsome guy. The up-close is proof enough. In a society that indulges in the superficial joys of plastic surgery, botox, laser skin treatments, fillers, and extra white/fake teeth parts it's refreshing to see a guy look completely natural. Like a 40 year old would look, only he wasn't your typical run-of-the-mill 40-year-old, eh?

Here's some more px of John that show him in a much better light:

Well, people have body hang-ups. But does anyone honestly think he was fat at any point around that 1965 period to be labeled as such? He was a solid guy compared to how skinny he was a couple years prior, but fat? And I have heard people say, "well compared to the other Beatles..." and I'm sorry but no. Paul was not that much thinner than John when John was at his heaviest. I just don't see a fat guy in any of the pics/films/interview clips. He looks completely healthy and normal-sized. The media is so jacked up.

Well, John wasn't fat during the "Help"-period, although it's true that he was a bit "chubby" then compared to the other Beatles :teeth1:, but that doesn't mean "fat" and I think he looked very handsome. I read that soon afterwards he stopped eating meat to lose weight and that it was the reason (besides taking LSD) why he looked much thinner during the last tour in 1966. To be honest, I'd even prefer him during his "chubby"-period :blush4:.

Oh my gosh yes. John and George are the most gorgeous in "Help." I do believe John looked amazing during their '66 tour. Although it's not on topic to this thread I'm going to look specifically for those pics Snoopy and post them. Hey, the John forum needs more random posts anyway. :)

Hmm, I'm not sure if the 3rd picture does really show John in a better light :wink2:, much more like "I'm sooooo tired" :teeth1:

But the last two pictures are great; especially the very last one; thank's for sharing :rolling1:

Oh, I also enjoy pictures of John during their tour of 1966; can't wait to see them :cool1:

Yeah, it's cool that the John forum is "(just like) starting over" :teeth1:

A stunning Shea Stadium 1966 tour picture...




And a wonderfully stylish, timeless capture from 1980...



Enjoy! :smile1:

Hi Nowhere Anne :wave1:

Thank's for the nice pictures :heart1:.... Besides the classics of HELP and the highlights of the Shea Stadium, I always enjoy the last picture; I think he looked even cooler and relaxed than in 1965 :cross2:

He had just as many pics looking younger and pretty fabulous. I mean, this jacket? He looks like he stepped off the set of Miami Vice.

Apple Scruff May 13, 2011 06:51 PM

1966 John pics I found...
 
See, this was coming right off of the "fat Beatle" crap and LOOK at how amazing he looks! (I Googled these images so please forgive me if I am not crediting you.)

I absolutely agree with you, Apple Scruff :wave1:. I don't think either that John looks older than he was on this picture; he just looked cool :cool1:

... and your comparison with "Miami Vice" concerning his jacket really made me laugh :teeth1:

Snoopy66 May 16, 2011 12:21 AM

The last picture is my absolute favourite :cool1:

I don't like the first one because of his haircut :wink2: On the other hand, I think John looks great on the second and seventh picture :cross2:

Thank's for sharing :wave1:

These may not be the best examples, as he looks like a line in all of them. But still thought they were great.
