"'I'm Losin' You'was a song from John Lennon's Double Fantasy album, back when Cheap Trick worked with Lennon. Lennon's wife Yoko Ono fired the band, but the song remained intact (with Nielsen's guitars and Carlo's drums) The song is also available in an unreleased remake of In Color, which was produced by Steve Albini....I questioned Bun E. about what is was like working with John Lennon on 'Double Fantasy.' He said it was great playing with Lennon, but that Yoko was a "f...ing bitch." He claimed the Lennons 'stole' some of Nielsen's riffs that he contributed to 'Losing You' without compensating Nielsen for them. It's fairly common knowledge that Yoko resented having to pay their session fees so this makes sense....The only Cheap Trick/Lennon stuff that's surfaced is the version of 'I'm Losing You' which is on the Lennon anthology. By the way, it was just Nielsen and Carlos who played with Lennon."
