WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE NIGHT

  • Print

In late 1974, Elton John bet John Lennon that if their duet of "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night" from Lennon's Walls and Bridges album went to number-one, the former Beatle would join Elton on stage at his Thanksgiving show at New York's Madison Square Garden. Lennon lost the bet, and it turned out to be his final live performance. The show was recorded and parts of it released, but film of that historic night has never surfaced -- until now. Shot from the orchestra, the brief, silent clip is in color and shows Elton introducing Lennon.
