A Matter of…Pee

Those crazy 70’s rock stars…a note left in red ink by no other than John Lennon.

This is a note from an upset John Lennon to Phil Spector. It seems that Keith Moon and Harry Nilsson supposedly…relieved themselves in the recording console in an unnamed studio. John was quite certain of that fact. The studio was threatening to evict them but John wasn’t having it. John didn’t date the note but it was from John Lennon’s “lost weekend” period between 73-75… the note sold for over $88,000.

This is what the note said.

“Phil –

See you around 12:30

Should you not yet know it was Harry and Keith who pissed on the console. Jerry now wants to evict us or that’s what Capitol tells us. Anyway tell him to bill Capitol for the damage if any. I can’t be expected to mind adult rock stars nor can May (Pang, Lennon’s personal assistant) besides she works for me not A+M. I’m about to p..s off to Record Plant (another recording studio) because of this crap.”

    1. Well it would take…8,800,000 pennies!
      I can’t imagine paying that for a piece of paper…now if it was A Day In They Life lyrics…yea…but that sold for much more.

      1. It’s right now! I thought the note was hilarious…. I get why Lennon was pissed…no pun intended.


      2. He was part of it but he had his limits… he was more mature. This is when he almost left the screaming one lol


      3. Of all people…you know who helped them get back together? The last person you would think. Paul McCartney.


      4. He thought it would make John happy. John was off getting drunk with Keith, Ringo, and Harry…he was basically getting to go places that he didn’t get to while a Beatle.
        After Paul acted as an inbetween…Yoko later said some bad stuff about him…that is gratitude.
