VH-1 Suzanne

1 Jun 1995

In June 1995 John performed Suzanne live in the VH-1 studios.
John plays acoustic guitar and is accompanied by Alan Thomson on bass and a conga player who might be Gaspar Lawal.
The song is introduced with a misspelled 'Susan' and lasts four and a half minutes (4:26). Halfway through Alan plays a sober but impressive bass solo.

Only one VHS home recording of this show survives which was on YouTube briefly, shortly after John died.
A couple of inferior copies taken from that still circulate.
