One night in New York, John Lennon got very drunk at a party, took a girl into a room and had sex with her.
Unfortunately, all the guests’ coats had been heaped on the bed. So when people wanted to go home, they couldn’t retrieve them — and everyone, including his wife, Yoko Ono, realised what was going on.
That, in a nutshell, was what Yoko told me some time later. ‘It was,’ she said, ‘very embarrassing.’
Of course, ‘embarrassing’ isn’t the word most wives would have chosen to describe the situation. But most wives aren’t Yoko.
She’d long known that when John got drunk, he’d behave irrationally and could sometimes be violent, and for this reason she always limited the amount of alcohol in their apartment.
But, on that particular night in 1973, there’d be no limit on drinks and drugs.
Other party guests said that they’d tried to calm John down, that he was blabbering and shouting and pushing them away before he disappeared into the bedroom with his conquest.
