John Lennon and The Beatles weren’t famed for their drug-taking per se. Their music and their output as artists always trumped the fact that they experimented with drugs during the sixties. But, despite their previous clean-cut image the band were known for narcotic experimentation, especially John Lennon’s love affair with LSD.
One night, during a particularly strong trip, the guitarist and songwriter found himself with the undeniable feeling that he was not only finding his spirituality within but that he was in fact, at that time (during an acid trip), Jesus Christ himself. To be John Lennon and Jesus Christ at the same time, what a lucky guy!
The story goes, according to Magical Mystery Tours: My Life With The Beatles from Tony Bramwell, that Lennon was out of his mind on a strong tab of acid when he called an emergency meeting of The Beatles. The members of the group, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison, soon rushed over to Lennon and met in the boardroom of their label Apple Records.
