John Lennon is interviewed in Paris by Reuters

6.00pm, Monday 26 January 1970 (44 years ago)

John Lennon and Yoko Ono had left Denmark on 25 January 1970, following an extended stay which began the previous December. They were delayed in Paris on their return to England due to fog.

The couple stayed at the Hilton hotel in the French capital. The Parisian correspondent for the news agency Reuters interviewed Lennon, although it was not a successful exchange. Lennon appeared surly and uncommunicative, giving brief, cursory answers to such subjects as his peace plans and The Beatles future releases.
