It seems as though there is a never-ending supply of Beatles-related memorablia on the auction block, and the newest item headed for top-dollar sale is John Lennon's "last" piano. NME.com reports that the piano that John Lennon played the night he was murdered on December 8, 1980 is being put for sale at $375,000.
The piano is not only linked to John Lennon, but also Bob Dylan and Don McLean. The piano was originally part of the inventory at Record Plant Recording Studios, the studio where Imagine was recorded in 1971. Since the studio closed in the 1990s, the piano has been locked up in storage.
The site auctioning the piano, Monuments in Time, will also be selling the album Lennon signed for his killer Mark David Chapman along with an autograph he signed for one of the Record Plant studio employees.
