An apparently lifeless John Lennon lies on the ground, his fellow-Beatles by his side. The haunting picture was taken in 1968 – 12 years before Lennon was gunned down by a crazed fan, Mark Chapman, in New York City.

It was one of many images taken by society photographer Tom Murray during the Fab Four’s last official photoshoot in 1968, which lay forgotten in an envelope for decades.

It was among a number of photographs which were made public today after lying forgotten about for years.

‘From two rolls of film there are 23 surviving shots. The colours are astonishing and it’s basically because the original slides were kept in the dark in an envelope for so many years.’

    Mark David Chapman. Always three names for an assassin.

    Oh my god! Someone PLAYED dead for a photograph, and then ACTUALLY died a mere 12 years later! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

    Incredibly weak. Remove “last” from the headline as it's not the truth (is it that hard to spend 5 seconds researching facts and Googling beatles last photo shoot?), and you've lost your basis for an article. Just delete the thing.

    These pictures are just practice for the big con. John Lennon is NOT dead. John Lennon lives on the planet Remulac with the Coneheads and Elvis Presley. He just couldn’t deal with Yoko anymore…..

Brian Johnson is no Bon Scott, but he's got balls.  Kudos to this raunchy Australian for pointing out how pretentious and self-absorbed it is to give and not be silent....
