[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 03/23/09 11:13 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
On March 25, 1969, John Lennon and his bride Yoko Ono began their bed-in for peace at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel.
On March 29, 2009, Marcel Gootjes will re-create the bed-in, but this time for charity, collecting money. He says he will stay in bed through April 1.

He says, "The reason why i am doing this, is because most people in my surroundings say that I look like John Lennon from that period and also, I think that the message "Give Peace A Chance" is very important! All the money we raise will be for the benefit."
Marcel is asking familiy, friends and companies to sponsor the bed-in to raise money.
He's also recorded an official single "Bed In For Peace 2009." You can hear the songs here and here. That's Marcel on drums and vocals, and his brother Menno Gootjes on piano, synth and guitars. It was recorded and mixed by Studio Het Pand in Vlaardingen, Holland.
Marcel's bed-in celebration will be held at the Euromast Tower, Rotterdam, Holland.
