John Lennon letter to Phil Spector sells for £53,000 at auction

A letter written by John Lennon to Phil Spector in the mid 1970s has sold for £53,000 at an online auction – over seven times its estimated pre-auction price of £7,000.

Penned in red ink, Lennon wrote the letter at an unknown studio in New York sometime during his ‘Lost Weekend’ – an 18-month period during 1973-75 when the former Beatle had split up from his wife, Yoko Ono.

The letter, titled, ‘A Matter Of Pee’, stated that Lennon had been warned by his record label Capitol that he faced being evicted from the studio. Referring to The Who drummer Keith Moon and singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson, Lennon stated: “Should you not know, it was Harry and Keith who pissed on the console!”
