John convened his famous meeting to tell everyone that he was Jesus. The night before he stunned Pete with: “I’m Jesus Christ. I’m back again…,” and looked at him like he was fucking nuts. But when the sun came up next morning he was still convinced, so he called everyone in and said: “I’ve got something very important to tell you all. I am… Jesus Christ. I have come back again. This is my thing.” Pete recalled the sound of silence in the room: “It was totally surreal,” he said. “I found myself half-laughing and thinking fucking hell. But no one cross-examined him. No plans were made to announce the Messiah’s arrival. There was a bit of muttering, then silence, till somebody suggested we adjourn for lunch.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
