John Lennon thinking his thoughts


Lennon’s Lyrics in UK National Museum

(2013) John Winston Lennon’s hand-written song lyrics are now on display at the British Library in London.

Visitors can see these scraps of paper displayed next to historical artifacts from Beethoven, Shakespeare and the Magna Carta!

Less than two weeks ago, Hunter Davies, the only official Beatles biographer, donated a handful of rare Beatles song manuscripts and Lennon letters to the institution as part of a “cultural gifts plan.”

Lyric sheets include “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “She Said She Said” and “In My Life.”

Retired rocket scientist and part-time brain surgeon. Ok, I also took some time out (four years!) to serve in the US Navy as a journalist. Continued a radio career in Seattle and southern California. Streaming radio and assorted podcasting keeps me busy. What a strange trip it’s been and continues to be!
