Lennon and Gregory to Fast

Lennon and Gregory to Fast

MONTREAL (UPI) —John Lennon announced a Christmas-day “peace fast” with American comedian Dick Gregory yesterday, and indicated there may be something to the rumors the Beatles are headed for a split-up.

Lennon was asked about the rumors at a press conference.

He hesitated before replying:

“Well, we’ll see how it works out in July. We’re going to see then about doing another album together.”

He said a new Beatles movie would be released shortly, a documentary-type film showing “how emotionally draining it is to make an album.”

Lennon is in Canada with his wife, Yoko Ono, promoting their peace campaign. He hasn’t said where the fast will be held.
