EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND star Peter Boyle had a rock 'n' roll moment at his 1977 nuptials - John Lennon was his best man.

Boyle, 68, walked down the aisle with LORAINE ALTERMAN in 1977, and admits his wife's high profile connections led to him forming a close relationship with the late Beatles legend.

He says, "My wife was doing an interview on Mel Brooks and she worked for ROLLING STONE. She knew Yoko Ono and then gradually we would hang out with John and Yoko.

"We'd go to dinner and we'd talk about everything from gurus to music to politics."
