About the image
This was taken at a New Year’s Eve party at Ray Cooper’s house in Chiswick, and shows Eric and George clowning around as they often did. They were such close friends. The third man was Stuart Lerner who, at the time, was dating my friend Shelley Duvall. She was in London filming ‘The Shining’ with Stanley Kubrick.  

George and Eric broke in to an impromptu version of ‘Guantanamara’, but delicacy forbids me from revealing their version.
