For Sale — One John Lennon Letter
At one time, John Lennon and Harry Nilsson were the best of friends and there are quite a few stories of some of their drunken high jinx.
The letter, penned by John, that is currently on the auction block, seems to indicate that Lennon was growing a bit tired of said high jinx and he dashed off a letter to his friend Phil Spector.
It seems that John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and Keith Moon were recording at A&M Records and, before they left, one of them relieved themselves in the recording studio. Actually, on the studio console if you want to be completely accurate.
Lennon's epistle reads, in part, " I can't be expected to mind adult rock stars nor can May, besides she works for me, not A&M! I'm about to piss off to [another recording studio] because of this crap!"
The 'May' mentioned in the letter was Lennon's then girlfriend, May Pang. Lennon and Yoko were separated at the time.
The letter, written in a very sloppy hand, is expected to go for as much as $9,000.
