Fact #149860


Short story:

John Lennon of The Beatles and Yoko Ono start their 10-day bed-in in Room 1742 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal, Canada.

Full article:

John Lennon : The point of the Bed-In, in a nutshell, was a commercial for peace, as opposed to a commercial for war, which was on the news every day those days in the newspapers.

The press came in expecting to see us fucking in bed. They all heard John and Yoko were going to fuck in front of the press for peaceā€¦ We were a married couple, in bed, talking about peace. It was one of our greater episodes.

Petula Clark (singer) : I was performing at the Place Des Arts. Late one night, I decided that I would go and see him. It was open house; a very odd kind of atmosphere. Anyway, I went in and there they were. Just sitting in bed. There was nothing saucy going on. It was really a very nice thing. I sat on the edge of the bed and talked, more with him than with her, and we talked about lots of things. He told me that I should do what I liked and what I could and that it was too bad if people didn't understand. I guess I knew that - but I think it helped just being able to talk about it with someone who was completely out of my circle and perhaps hearing his views on it.

He told me how (Buddhism) had offered him so much inner peace. How he lived not from day to day but from minute to minute and how it teaches that if you give out energy , it comes back to you. Relatively, it wasn't a heavy conversation at all.
