Viva, the Hotel Chelsea and JOL

You know how Yoko often talks about how many people were so distraught when JOL was murdered that they hurt themselves.

Here is one such story.


VIVA (Writer, painter, actor, dilettante): There were a lot of suicides out those windows. One night, a guy from a floor above us landed on a metal table in the courtyardon his head.

The very next day another guy jumped out the window onto the synagogue next door. It was just after John Lennon was shot. But this man didnt diehe was bloody but conscious. He was being carried down the hall on a stretcher. I asked him, Why did you jump out the window? He said, Because John Lennon was shot.
