Len­non’s Bea­tles breakup let­ter sold for $30,000

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

An an­gry let­ter from John Len­non to Paul and Linda McCart­ney writ­ten shortly af­ter the Bea­tles’ breakup has been sold at auc­tion for nearly $30,000.

The two-page typed draft, with hand­writ­ten an­no­ta­tions by Len­non, was sold Thurs­day by Bos­ton-based RR Auc­tion.

RR says the let­ter is be­lieved to have been writ­ten in 1971 in re­sponse to crit­i­cism Len­non re­ceived from Linda McCart­ney about his de­ci­sion to not pub­licly an­nounce his de­par­ture from the band.
