Based on what I’ve read, May Pang was actually a pretty good girlfriend to John Lennon. I mean, say what you want about his 1973-74 “Lost Weekend,” but he was, by all accounts, happy.
But her personal assistant skills left a lot to be desired. From Pang’s Wikipedia page:
In March 1974, Lennon began producing Harry Nilsson’s Pussy Cats album … Lennon thought it would be a good idea for the musicians to live under one roof to ensure they would get to the studio on time, so Pang rented a beach house in Santa Monica, for her, Lennon, Nilsson, Ringo Starr and Keith Moon to live in.
I feel like maybe Pang should have pushed back on that idea a bit and maybe, just maybe, not have signed that lease.
In other news, what do you suppose the security deposit on a house leased to 1974-Lennon, Harry Nillson and Keith Moon would have run you? Ringo had to have been the stable one. [checks Ringo’s Wikipedia page]:
Zak Starkey is also a drummer, and during his father’s regular absences, he spent time with the Who’s Keith Moon.
Holy crap, I’m surprised anyone survived the 70s.
