During the Lennon-Yoko Ono separation and at Ono's instigation, their young, personal assistant became his constant companion. Deeply emotional and trying "to find himself", Lennon worked diligently to create the songs for his 1974 album Walls and Bridges, in which he dedicated one song to Ono and "Surprise Surprise" to his lover. Old friend Elton John sang backup on that song and played accompaniment on "Whatever Gets You thru the Night". Consequently, when recording Caribou in Caribou, Colorado, he invited Lennon to participate in his rendition of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" - a post-Beatle, Lennon-McCartney collaboration. In the summer of 1974, Lennon and Pang both attended that recording session, at which the former Beatle promised to perform live with his extravagant friend later in the year. At that Madison Square Garden concert on November 28, the two rockers sang "Whatever Gets You thru the Night" - Lennon's only number-one tune from Walls and Bridges, "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Lucy In The Sky". It proved to be Lennon's last on-stage performance, as he retired for five years after Ono won her husband back from Pang by presenting him with his son, Sean Ono Lennon. Framed in Gallery of History style: 46½x30¼.
