John Lennon on the Watergate Hearings

"I only went once to see Watergate but it made the papers because I was recognized straight away. I thought it was better on TV anyway because I could see more. When it first came on, I watched it live all day, so I just had the urge to actually go. I had other business in Washington, anyway. The public was there and most Senators have children, so every time there was a break in the proceedings, I had to sign autographs. I was looking like a Buddhist monk at the time because all of my hair had been chopped off and I thought nobody would spot me. They spotted Yoko before me and assumed, rightfully, that I must be with her. It was quite a trip."
