John Lennon's Piano Is On Tour
14 years ago
I love the fact that it's not only being photographed in these locations, but also being played by people who (presumably) have a tie to that place and the incidents that took place there.
I had to google "bill clayton". Didn't know about that one. Thanks!
This is just the sort of thing he would have loved.
An upright piano? I would have thought that he would have sprung for a grand. Unless he had a tiny apartment which in NYC is always possible.
George Michael bought the Lennon piano at an auction in October 2000. Considered the most expensive piece of pop memorabilia, experts have estimated its value at US$8 million to $12 million. Michael and his partner, Kenny Goss, owner of Goss Gallery in Dallas, want to further strengthen the project’s peaceful message, by having “Imagine” performed on the piano at each stop. A video documentary and a published volume of the images are under development, with plans to donate proceeds to charity.
Hell, I had no idea that
bought this. Fantastic post, Petesies!
Nice to see 'ya...
Great stuff, all 'round.
My opinion of George Michael has been greatly improved. Nice post petebest! With all the recent bad news, this was a nice change o' pace.
I drove past Lennon's old house this (and every) morning. Beat that, pop pickers. I did not see his baby grand.
