You Can't Do That - Lennon solo video

Postby (scoobster28) » Thu Aug 23, 2018 11:14 am

So You Can't Do That is probably my favorite Beatles' tune. And, from what I understand, John Lennon played the solo on the track which may have been his first official recorded solo (not sure if he did any for a BBC Radio or Hamburg shows that were recorded). However, in searching through YouTube I cannot find a single video of him playing it. Either they are lip-synching to the record, or the camera cuts away from John during the solo (perhaps because they think George will be playing it), or I think I have seen George play it sometimes in concert.

Does anyone know of a performance where John played the solo "live" on video? I am not trying to learn it... I just want to see how he handled it.

Thanks.

Lots of audio, never seen video where the camera’s on him.
