It was this day in Rock History in 1969, this guy returns his MBE to the Queen in protest. Who was it?
It was John Lennon. He wrote, “Your Majesty, I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against ‘Cold Turkey’ slipping down the charts. With love, John Lennon of Bag.” Queen Elizabeth’s response is lost to history.
