An angry letter written in a New York studio by John Lennon to Phil Spector in the mid-70s has sold for £53,000 to a private collector at an online auction.
NME reports that the letter, titled, ‘A Matter Of Pee’, stated that Lennon had been warned by his record label Capitol that he faced being evicted from the studio. Referring to The Who drummer Keith Moon and singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson, Lennon stated: “Should you not know, it was Harry and Keith who p***ed on the console!”
Referring to his assistant May Pang, who he briefly dated during the period, Lennon added: “I can’t be expected to mind adult rock stars, nor can May. Besides, she works for me, not A&M.”
Auctioneer Louise Cooper said, “This is a rare note in that it mentions so many well-known figures from the era.”
