A Random John Lennon “To-Do” List Is Being Auctioned Off
Lennon’s handwritten lyrics to the Beatles’ classic, “A Day in the Life”, sold for $1.2 million. Even his tooth recently sold for $31,200.
Now, GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com is auctioning off a random “to-do” list that Lennon wrote. The list is pretty boring, or as the seller describes it: “An amazing look into the ‘everyday-ness’ of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most important icons!”
Here are a few of the things on the list:
–“HBO guy coming between 3:00-5:00. BE THERE. (The other guy didn’t know what was wrong.)”
–“When [the HBO guy] arrives…YOU let him in, YOU tell him WHAT TO DO. Yesterday, they made an offer to attach [an] FM radio (or something). I’m not sure what they meant, but I suspect it must improve FM radio reception. Find out. Maybe WE DO want it. (I didn’t know what he was talking about.)”
–“Would it be a good idea to make sure BOTH CARS have full gas tanks?”
–“Put back [son] Sean’s large mattress. (Today)”
–“Hook on door in our bathroom is falling off.”
–“Tell me about my hair dryer…yea or nay.”
The list was written for Lennon’s personal assistant. Otherwise, that one about the hair dryer would seem a little schizophrenic…although either way it’s pretty bizarre.
The note is dated May 22nd, but the year is unknown.
The minimum bid is $3,000, and it’s expected to bring in between $4,000 and $5,000.
