Dr Robert

Dr Robert

from 45.00

Beautiful Acrylic and Indian inks on canvas hand made inspired by The Beatles song of the same name from the album ¨Revolver¨

Doctor Robert, written mainly by John Lennon, is notable for containing The Beatles' first explicit references to drugs, although at the time of release they went largely unnoticed.

John Lennon later described the song as autobiographical.

Another of mine. Mainly about drugs and pills. It was about myself. I was the one that carried all the pills on tour. Well, in the early days. Later on the roadies did it. We just kept them in our pockets loose. In case of trouble.

John Lennon
All We Are Saying, David Sheff

Although many in London thought the titular doctor referred to art dealer Robert Fraser, it was actually written about Dr Robert Freymann, who ran a discreet clinic on Manhattan's East 78th Street.

Known as Dr Robert or the Great White Father, Freymann had a reputation for giving vitamin B-12 injections containing large doses of amphetamines, mainly to well-heeled New Yorkers.

Word spread of his willingness with prescriptions, eventually finding its way to Lennon and McCartney on one of their American trips.
