Actor Peter Fonda, who died on Friday at the age of 79, may be best remembered for his starring role in the counterculture classic “Easy Rider.” But he also contributed to the soundtrack of the era, helping John Lennon write the lyrics to a classic Beatles song during an acid trip with the band in 1965. John Lennon made a sad Yoko Ono money revelation before his death.
Actor Peter Fonda died a few days ago, but he previously revealed how late The Beatles icon John Lennon reacted when he told him he had been shot and survived death.
Fonda told The Post in 2000 that in 1965 George Harrison was using LSD with The Beatles and feared he would die.
“I was saying, ‘Don’t worry George, it’s OK. I know what it’s like to be dead.”
Fonda had survived a shooting accident when he was younger, and Lennon heard what he said, and it inspired “She Said, She Said.”
“Lennon looks over, all pissed off, and says, ‘You know what it’s like to be dead? Who put all that s— in your head? You’re making me feel like I’ve never been born.”
“And right then, right as he said it, John’s eyes went wide and he knew that was the lyric: ‘You’re making me feel like I’ve never been born.’”
John Lennon’s famous drug dealer was recently revealed. Lennon’s memorial Twitter account also recently put up a quote about his love for Yoko Ono, “Anybody who claims to have some interest in me as an individual artist or even as part of the Beatles has absolutely misunderstood everything I ever said if they can’t see why I’m with Yoko. And if they can’t see that, they don’t see anything.”
He also said, “There are some subtleties of emotions which I cannot seem to express in pop music, and it frustrates me. Maybe that’s why I still search for other ways of expressing myself. Song writing is a limiting experience in some ways – writing down words that have to rhyme.”
