Sleepless Night (1970s)
John is composing/drawing in the bedroom at the Dakota. His piano is next to the bed; sheets of paper are all over the bed, spilling onto the floor. Often, he would stay up all night working.
“Songwriting is about getting the demon out of me. It’s like being possessed. You try to go to sleep, but the song won’t let you. So you have to get up and make it into something and then you’re allowed to sleep.”
– John Lennon
