Peter Fonda accidentally shot himself in the stomach on his 11th birthday, an accident that nearly killed the future actor. Fonda allegedly shared his story with John Lennon and George Harrison during a drug-fueled party, claiming, "I know what it's like to be dead." The quote is cited as a direct inspiration for the Beatles' song "She Said, She Said."
