Could have been a mug shot.

Pics from this era always crack me up.When George Harrison traveled to India to learn the sitar from him,Ravi Shankar asked the guitarist to assume a disguise to keep people from recognizing him. Harrison chopped his locks and grew a moustache (an attempt that he himself later described as naïve). He managed to clear customs and immigration, but got caught out by the elevator boy at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower hotel in Mumbai. Soon enough, there was a crowd outside. Shankar and Harrison fled to Srinagar, where they lived on a houseboat and continued Harrison’s study of the sitar.

    Hi. I own the ‘Little Julian’s Guardian Angel’ account on Flickr: A collection of photographs of Julian Lennon(Funny how George is my favourite Beatle though 🙂 ).
    I have several rare pictures of George with the Lennons if you’re interested. I can even send you the exact links to the pictures if you would like.
