The John Lennon FBI files

Apple Records publicity
after court decision

The FBI prepared a "wanted" style flyer for distribution to local law enforcement agencies in Miami to facilitate the arrest of Lennon (HQ-24 page 5). Although he had one of the most famous faces in the Western world at this point, the FBI apparently was not confident that local police would be able to recognize the ex-Beatle. The photo, however, is not of Lennon but rather David Peel, an East Village street singer who had become friends with Lennon and who had an album released on Apple records that year.
