“John Lennon: the New York Years” exhibit

11 05 2009

On Tuesday May 12, 2009 (tomorrow) an exhibit of rare John Lennon personal effects entitled “John Lennon: the New York Years,” opens in Soho, at the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame Annex.

The exhibit is full of personal (and controversial) itemsBesides Lennon’s guitars, letters and other personal effects, it also includes a paper bag containing the bloody clothes from the night he was shot to death.


The Lennon items are part of a new exhibit. . . includes Lennon’s famous New York City T-shirt, his upright piano from his Dakota apartment, and a posthumous 1981 Grammy Award for the couple’s album “Double Fantasy.”

John Lennon Exhibit

Looks like a pretty nice exhibit.  I’ve been quite critical of John lately, the bed-ins, the lyrics to Imagine, which I find childish and, in spots, horrifying.  But I think he was an amazing person and musician, despite his flaws. (We’re all flawed, right?)  I wish I could see these items while they are on display, even the bloody clothes.
