Come Together was a Lennon number that supposedly began life as the campaign song for acid-guru Timothy Leary's intended run against Ronald Reagan for governor of California. The song mesmerized Geoff and Scott, a Lennon fan. From the Londonderry Hotel, where the two were staying on vacation, Stirling telexed a note to Lennon. It said: "I've heard your Come Together. So here I am. Geoff Stirling." A few hours later, they were seated in Apple Studios, recording the first in a string of interviews with Lennon that Stirling would later broadcast on his Canadian radio stations.
"I look back on that first interview and I realize how profound it was," Scott told Report on Business magazine in December 2004. "It was a philosophical discussion about the forces of good and evil, and how Lennon was trying to use his music to socially improve civilization."
