Unseen Pics: John/Yoko Bed-In

give-peace-a-chance-john-002It was forty years ago today that John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged a bed-in for peace at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada. Photojournalist Gerry Deiter captured it on camera, but his pictures have never been seen until now. They form part of an exhibition, “Give Peace A Chance: John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Bed-In For Peace,” showing at The Beatles Story in Liverpool until 15 August, 2009. In the photo I’ve chosen, I love how John shows his hippie cred by sniffing a flower.
