DHANI HARRISON ON WORLD CAFE

By Posted on 0 37

Dhani’s new record, IN///PARALLEL, feels a bit like walking through a lucid dream. It’s complex and artful, and at first listen, maybe a little dark. But as he explains, he uses the dark to inspire catharsis, not fear. Dhani also told me he writes lyrics with caution: “You have to be careful with — with the words you use in the daytime, I think, because the English language, I think, is probably just a big magic spell, and when you say things they can tend to manifest.”

Although IN///PARALLEL is Dhani’s debut solo album, he’s certainly no newbie to music. He’s released a slew of records with his band thenewno2, and the supergroup Fistful of Mercy (with Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur). Dhani has also composed for film and television.

Dhani made his professional musical debut shortly after his father passed away in 2001 — along with Jeff Lynne, Dhani co-produced his father George Harrison’s posthumous 2002 album Brainwashed. Yes, Dhani is the son of the late Beatles guitarist George Harrison. While having a father as legendary as George could be complicated for an artist trying to forge his own musical path, Dhani seems to gracefully navigate the tightrope of celebrating his father’s legacy while embodying his own singular voice. Dhani shares happy memories of his dad sending dad jokes by fax to his friends (apparently a dad joke is still a dad joke, even if your dad is a Beatle). He also shares a harrowing memory from the hospital on the night an attempt was made on his parents’ lives. Plus, we talk about conscious catharsis, meditation and balancing dark and light — and Dhani performs live music from IN///PARALLEL with his band.

JOHN’S OPTOMETRIST GETS EMOTIONAL OVER RECOVERED MEMORIBILIA

By Posted on 0 22

When John’s Upper West Side optometrist was watching this week’s news about the recovery of a trove of the Beatle’s belongings — and spotted the metal-rimmed eyeglasses the rock legend had bought from him more than 40 years ago — the emotions came flooding black.

“I was almost crying when I saw that,” Dr. Gary Tracy, 69, told The Post, recalling the moment he saw the image of the round cable temple glasses with a folded handwritten prescription from 1978 bearing Tracy’s name on the letterhead.

“The same writing, the exact same paper from back then,” marveled Tracy, who is still in business. “It was pretty emotional to see that . . . I never knew they were stolen.”

The glasses were among about 100 items belonging to Lennon that were stolen more than a decade ago from his widow, Yoko Ono, at their apartment in The Dakota and recovered in Germany this week.

The trove included handwritten music, another pair of Lennon’s signature eyeglasses and three leather-bound diaries — one with his final entry before he was murdered outside The Dakota in 1980.

“[It] doesn’t surprise me they were stolen,” Tracy said, noting that the specs “are worth quite a bit of money.”

Tracy, who was Lennon’s optometrist and sold him more than a dozen spectacles from 1975 to 1979, keeps five pairs of Lennon’s old lenses and one pair of the rocker’s frames tucked away in a safe-deposit box in New Jersey.

“These are old prescriptions, and we put the new prescriptions in the glasses. I just saved the lenses,” said Tracy, speaking from the West 79th Street office where he moved four years ago from the original Columbus Avenue office that he opened in 1974.

Tracy would not say what John’s prescription was.

“[Ono] is very possessive of the estate,” he said, “and she makes sure no one knows the prescription.”

Tracy also keeps two handwritten notes John left him. They are locked away in a frame.

“You put the wrong glasses in. I wanted graded grey,” one reads, with “graded” underlined. “Change frame on new pair — something similar,” the other says.

But Tracy told: “I don’t think I put the wrong lenses in. I think he changed his mind — never argue with a customer.” Tracy recalled when he first met Lennon and Ono. It was in December 1975, after they were spotted “peeking” into his shop’s window.

“The next night, I’m doing my exam and finishing up and I heard someone come in [and say], ‘Can I get my eyes examined?’ and I knew that was his voice,” Tracy recalled. “I darted out to exam him.”

Tracy remembered how Lennon “loved glasses” and said that at one point, the Beatle was coming in every three weeks for repairs because he would break his glasses.

“He was rough on glasses, bounced around playing music,” Tracy said.
