Season 2 | Gary van Scyoc: John Lennon's “Mr. Pocket”

Bassist Gary Van Scyoc recalls John Lennon's "discovery" of the Elephant's Memory Band in New York City. Gary, along with his bandmates Stan Bronstein, Tex Gabriel, Richard Frank Jr., Adam Ippolito, and John La Boosca, with renowned studio drum Jim Keltner recorded John & Yoko's politically charged "Some Time in New York City" album in 1972 - a riveting song-cycle which was the most controversial entry in Lennon's solo canon and among the most divisive slabs from a major rock artist.
