It's the 40th anniversary of the bed-in done by John Lennon & Yoko Ono.
I didnt know that a rightwing cartoonist was also in the room trying to get John Lennon to start a fight! I guess he didnt or we'd have heard about it.
On the upside, in late May of 1969, here was the most famous couple in the world – the Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono – nonchalantly sitting in their white honeymoon pyjamas talking peace and non-violence in a Montreal hotel room. I was one of the throng of reporters there – as The Globe's first full-time rock writer, I'd been invited by the pair and their press secretary Derek Taylor after helping them (in a hastily called strategy meeting) to settle on Montreal as the site of “the bed-in.”
