John Lennon ‘To Do’ List Up For Auction (Beatles For Sale)
BEATLES junk always sells, regardless of how dull or menial it is. Remember John Lennon’s tooth getting purchased by some bozo? George Harrison’s Vox amp will soon be on the auction block in London soon. It’s not all handwritten Strawberry Fields (Forever) lyrics and Lennon’s Imagine piano.
And the latest thing up for sale is a to-do list complied by Lennon and will be on-sale at GottaHaveRockandRoll.com.
So what amazing things will we find on this list? ‘Promote World Peace With The Wife‘ maybe? ‘Punch that swine Macca‘ perhaps? One thing that isn’t on there is ‘Don’t Get Shot By Crazed Fan Outside House‘.
Well, amazing insight can be found in the menial. So what does a genius need to do? Well, outside meeting an “HBO guy”, Lennon needed to make sure “both cars have full gas tanks”. Hmmm. Something more impressive is needed. How about some scrawled note about fixing a hook on a bathroom door?
The list, which is nearly illegible, has a starting bid of $3,000 and is expected to pull in more than $4,000, and couldn’t be more pointless.
Celebrities. They don’t make ’em like they used to, eh?
