John Lennon: Kotex Incident!

THE MOST WORLD-CHANGING HAPPENING THAT EVER HAPPENED

TODAY, IT BEING MARCH 12!


One evening in 1974, John Lennon met his girlfriend May Pang and a few other friends for dinner at a Los Angeles restaurant. Lennon got drunk, visited the ladies' bathroom... and emerged with a sanitary napkin taped to his forehead.
The gang then visited the Troubador Club, where Lennon, still wearing his unusual head dress, shouted obscenities at the club's performers. When their waitress refused to serve him, Lennon complained, "Don't you know who I am?" "Yeah," the waitress tartly replied. "You're some asshole with a Kotex on his head!"

["I stuck it on me forehead," Lennon later recalled, "like the way people stick pennies on and say, 'Look at that.' ... I found it in the toilet, just stuck on the wall, clean as a whistle. And it just stayed on - it was rather splendid."]

For a great 1975 interview with John, go to http://www.john-lennon.com/1975rollingstoneinterview.htm ... and then for John's take on the Kotex incident, do a CTL-F page search using the word troubadour.

[Trivia: The caretaker of the suburban Liverpool home in which John Lennon grew up (Mendips) once recalled finding a fan's feet poking out of an upstairs bathroom. It was an American woman lying on the floor, hugging the toilet. "She said, 'I'm sorry, I just want to be close to John,'" he recalled. "I didn't have the heart to tell her that the toilet wasn't the original."]

...See the mrbrianepstein Community for other "happenings," including ones that Brian might have noticed, had he not bitten the big one.
(Well, I'm sure he'd bitten a few big ones in his day, but that's not what I meant...) (sorry, sorry, sorry!)
