Angry Letter from John Lennon to Phil Spector Sold at Auction
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.30.2014



NME reports that a letter written by John Lennon to Phil Spector in the mid-1970s for sold for over $88,000 at an online auction. This was over seven times the estimated pre-auction price of about $11,651.

The letter was penned in red ink by Lennon at an unknown studio in New York during his "lost Weekend," an 18-month period from 1973-75 when he had split from his wife, Yoko Ono. The letter was titled "A Matter of Pee" and said that Lennon had been warned by his record label Capitol that he faced being evicted from the studio. Referencing The Who drummer Keith Moon and singer Harry Nilsson, Lennon wrote: "Should you not know, it was Harry and Keith who pissed on the console!"

Also referring to his assistant, May Payn, who he dated during the period, Lennon stated: "I can't be expected to mind adult rock stars, nor can May. Besides, she works for me, not A&M."

The letter was sold to a private collector by the London auction house Cooper Owen. Auctioneer Louise Cooper said on the letter, "This is a rare note in that it mentions so many well-known figures from the era." Lennon later gave the letter to guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, who sold the letter. Davis played on Lennon's 1974 album, Walls And Bridges.
