John Lennon and Jesus

No, not the infamous remark in 1966, "more popular than Jesus", but one better than that:

from https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment ... 9eBtHXOTgc

Spotted by Far Out Magazine, the story goes that Lennon was out of his mind on acid and called an emergency meeting with The Beatles.

So, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr all headed over to the boardroom of Apple Records.


It was here that Lennon announced: “I’ve got something very important to tell you.

“I am Jesus Christ. I have come back again. This is my thing.”
"When the desert comes, people will be sad; just as Cannery Row was sad when all the pilchards were caught and canned and eaten." - John Steinbeck

Damn it, I could've sworn you were talking about his recordings with Phil Ochs:


(Actually, I thought they'd only played one song together, this is the first time I've ever heard this track)
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

My brother went crazy on hard drugs when I was a kid and thought he was Jesus. He ended up being sectioned.

A fun time for all.
