John Lennon - Working Class Hero Tee
This variant is currently sold out
‘Working Class Hero’ was a scabrous and angry track from 1970’s ‘John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band’ album, in which Lennon rants against his perceived betters.
‘They hurt you at home and they hit you at school, They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool, Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules, A working class hero is something to be.’
The picture of John wearing the Working Class Hero T shirt was taken while John, Yoko Ono and their young son Sean were on holiday in Japan. Yoko Ono had given birth to Sean on October 9, 1975, and the trio made repeated visits to Japan over the next few years. These trips were documented by Nishi Saimaru, who acted as the couple’s personal photographer and assistant.
Many of her pictures appear in ‘The John Lennon Family Album’, a collection of shots from Lennon’s ‘semi-retirement’ years.
