Adam Ippolito

Elephant’s Memory was a protest band of the 1960’s and 70’s in New York City’s East Village. The group became the Plastic Ono Elephant’s Memory Band after John and Yoko arrived on the scene in 1972 and asked them to be their backing band. Adam Ippolito played keyboard.

    i agree this interview wasn’t very insightful. for me, the two best ones were jack douglass and bob gruen. can’t wait to actually see the entire show.

  • John Woodruff

    Raw and real.

    I used to play with Adam in 1978 in Joe Beck’s band. Good to see him, as we’ve been out of touch for 30 years! Adam, email me! :)
