The Born-Again Beatles: John Lennon Interview Reveals His Charismatic Edge
BBC Radio has just aired a never before heard interview with John Lennon from 1969 where he claims the Beatles were a Christian band !!
John Lennon set american's bezerk in '66 stating that the beatles were 'bigger than jesus' and that Christianity would "vanish and shrink"
In the 69 interview he tries to put his comments in perspective
"It's just an expression meaning the Beatles seem to me to have more influence over youth than Christ.
"Now I wasn't saying that was a good idea, 'cause I'm one of Christ's biggest fans. And if I can turn the focus on the Beatles on to Christ's message, then that's what we're here to do."
Just to add to his credibility, the interview was conducted while he was in bed with Yoko at the Bed-In For Peace protest in Montreal.
