THE JOHN LENNON PIANO
35 years after the musical legend’s assassination, the ‘John Lennon Piano’ is going on display for the first time ever. The piano can be heard on a number of hit tracks including some collaborations with David Bowie and Elton John and is said to have been the source of inspiration for many Beatles songs. Walls and Bridges, and Double Fantasy are albums where the piano can be heard as well as on many other songs by Lennon.
“He was so attached to it that those closest to him renamed it as the “John Lennon piano” due to his insistence on moving it to every studio he worked in.”
John Lennon Piano returns to Liverpool
The piano has been shipped back to Liverpool (the home of Lennon and Beatles) from the USA where it has been for the best part of the century. It is going on display at the Beatles Story where a whole range of Beatles memorabilia is on display including guitars and records belonging to the Fab Four. Without a shadow of a doubt, the John Lennon Piano will bring in yet more keen Beatles fans, eager to learn more about the pop legends.
