John Sinclair (born October 2,1941 in Flint, Michigan), was a Detroit poet, one-time manager of the band MC5, and leader of the White Panther Party from November 1968 to July 1969. He was jailed in 1969 after selling two joints of marijuana to undercover narcotics officers. His case received international attention when on December 10,1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono headlined the "Free John Now Rally" in front of 15-20,000 people at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Lennon performed the song, "John Sinclair," calling on the authorities to "Let him be, set him free, Let him be like you and me."
Three days after the concert, the Michigan Supreme Court released Sinclair, and later over-turned his conviction.

Ten For Two and Concert For Bangladesh occurred only about four months apart but what a tremendous difference.
The Ten For Two features John Lennon at his most polemic. The speakers in the rally, Father James Groppi, Bobby Seale and Jerry Rubin, are quite extreme and make some inflammatory statements (Groppi comparing Nixon to Hitler is a bit much to take). The music is a mixed bag too. It's obvious Allan Gingsberg can't sing, and I'm not sure about some of the minor acts like The Up either. A young Bob Segar plays a great version of "Carol" and there is a rare performance by Phil Ochs (several years before his suicide).
The whole interest in the film is John Lennon of course, and his set consists of four songs (three really with one Yoko song). He sounds very raw and unrehearsed, even reading the lyrics off of a music stand. But his charisma comes through very strong, being able to hold the entire arena by just his very presence.
