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.
