Rock Hard this Weekend !
Excited to share the latest design for the KnuckleBonz® Rock Iconz® Statue Series, Live from Madison Square Garden 1972…John Lennon. The stage-ware in this design is very well known with the iconic military shirt top and blue tinted glasses. John had a few different versions of this he would ware on stage and even around the streets of New York in the early 70s. Lennon and Yoko Ono had moved to New York in 1971 as full-time residents.
John played 2 benefit shows in 1972 at the Garden that were release as a live LP and concert video in 1986 under the supervision of Yoko One.
Our limited edition statue design is at 1/9th scale, 8.5 inches tall, as it is with all in the series. This is officially licensed with the John Lennon Estate. Each statue ships with a hand numbered certificate of authenticity on the base. Not more than 3000 will be hand cast and detailed for John Lennon and Beatles fans worldwide.

Rock Hard !
Here’s the set list from Madison Square Garden Aug 30th 1972 John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band:
*Power to the People
*It’s So Hard
*Move on Fast
*Woman Is the Nigger of the World
*Sisters, O Sisters
*Well Well Well
*Born in a Prison
*We’re All Water
*Don’t Worry Kyoko (Mummy’s Only Looking for Her Hand in the Snow)
*Big Mama Thornton cover
*Give Peace a Chance
The Plastic Ono Band nexus is traced to a creative concept by Yoko Ono dating as far back as 1967. The band in the flesh can be seen here is the grainy, yet pro-shot film from the fall of 1969 at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival Festival.
At this festival the super star Plastic Ono Band w/ John Lennon and featuring the likes of Eric Clapton on guitar joined an amazing bill that included many of the founders of Rock n’ Roll and John Lennon’s heroes. Bo Didley, Check Berry, Little Richard and “the Killer” Jerry Lee Lewis all played full sets ahead of the Plastic Ono band. The Plastic Ono Band setlist was limited as the band had not really ever played together. The crowd was treated to rock standards like Carl Perkin’s Blue Suede Shoes, Money (That’s What I Want), and Dizzy Miss Lizzy before a Beatles number Yer Blues. Lennon also did treat the fans to his popular solo tracks of Cold Turkey and Give Peace a Chance.
The Plastic Ono band would appear in various forms throughout the 70s with lineups that included former Beatles Ringo Starr and George Harrison as well as The Who’s Keith Moon and the great Billy Preston on keyboards. John and Billy had of course hooked up during the making of Let It Be when Preston energized those recording sessions.
