John Lennon's Notes Set for Auction
John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for the The Beatles song "I'm Only Sleeping" are expected to fetch up to $525,000 when they go up for auction in London in December. The late rocker scribbled down the words on the back of a phone bill demanding payment for an outstanding bill.
The note's value is estimated at between $375,000 and $525,000. The Fab Four's 1964 Ivor Novello Award for songwriting for their hit single "She Loves You" is also among the memorabilia going under the hammer in the Bonhams auction, and is thought to be worth up to $75,000, while a second trophy, their 1968 win for "She's Leaving Home", carries an estimated price tag of $30,000'.
Other items in the December 15 sale include a list of Lennon's personal expenses for doctor's fees for his son Julian, and a note of payments to his first wife Cynthia. That is expected to sell for a maximum of $22,500.
