Full DVD can be bought here: . Tom Snyder interviews a very weirded out Jack Douglas, producer of Double Fantasy, the day after John Lennon was killed. This is an excerpt of a Tom Synder Beatles DVD with Paul and Ringo also interviewed on different episodes. I’ll upload one segment of this interview with John Lennon as well, but it is available elsewhere on youtube.

    This interview makes me wanna say, “WHY Chapman? WHY?” Lennon was ready to be more positive and move forward in life; and you just had to stop it!!!

    I meet John in 1971 and he quit for a short time and JOHN was a new man in the 80′s

  6. KatelynJamie says:

    John had apparently said something to him very strange connected with death, on the night of his death. To this day Jack will not divulge what John said. There was audio form the night before and Jack wiped it after the killing.

    I wish John knew how many people love him still and how he is an icon that will live on through every generation, I was born 17 years after he died, but I feel like I know him!

    it was us limeys and scums that invented the good old USA (only joking). Why don’t we knock all this transatlantic racism on its head. look we’re allies for Christ sake. don’t you think Bin Laden and his ilk would love to see us baiting each other? I’m a brit and a few years ago i spent a few days in New York. The americans were always kind and gracious to us and made us feel at home. God bless our american brothers and sisters….

  13. angreemike says:

    Douglas was a classy guy and one of the few that TRULY loved Lennon.

  14. jrock714 says:

    Has anyone seen the clip from the news on 12/8/80 where they are interviewing Jack Douglas and a female he was with? He was wearing like a pinkish checkered shirt. From what I remember Jack was pleading with the NYPD or whoever, to let him into Roosevelt Hospital. I saw it ages ago, but haven’t seen it since. I thought might surface on some of this stuff.

  18. PAULLONDEN says:

    Although Lennon’s a legend ,he was unnessecarily hung up about the “moptop”years.
    Thanks to you know who.Who these days,is riding the coattails of those ‘lesser’ years.
    Thanx ¥, for kidding John into believing he could walk the streets of N Y unprotected.Unlike “over there” “They all love us here”.minders are not needed and uncool.

    The guy’s obviously holdin back tears as he talks and this maybe gives the impression of being” weirded-out” ! Hes most probably in a shock induced daze …very lucid tho’ !

  21. sjaco444 says:

    Douglas was close to Lennon, and is clearly in shock as he tries to deal with the death of his good friend.

    It is sadly true that Yoko tried to stiff Douglas of his share of royalties from Double Fantasy. He went to court and won easily in spite of Yoko’s lawyers trying to smear Douglas’ reputation. The judge scolded Yoko for her appalling conduct. To call it simply “business, pure and simple” is nonsense. It’s fair to say this was not Yoko’s finest hour.

  22. godhelpme2009 says:

    @oysterboy9 ,i feel very sensitive to the kind of thing U R referring to, it can be subtle sometimes, but i don’t see him as doing that.He seems pretty much just keeping it together. You can see how shallow his breathing is almost the whole time. He was a friend & a fan & U can see he is just telling his personal experience. Also he wanted the message that John was trying to convey w/this new phase in his career not to be lost in the overwhelming response to John Lennon being murdered.

  24. DangerousBastard says:

    Weirded out? Well, yeah, his friend was just shot in the back.

    Never seen this before, thanks.

  25. ledZeppelin7680 says:

    @TELEVISIONARCHIVES bullshit, there’s so much evidence that the government was involved with his murder, it would take a leming to ignore it.
