The piano on which John Lennon composed the music for Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is heading to auction.
It might be among the most expensive Beatles-linked instruments ever sold. TMZ reports that Gotta Have Rock and Roll auctions expect it to go for around $1.2 million.
For that kind of money, you want proof -- and the instrument, long housed at John's Kenwood mansion in Weybridge, carries a plaque stating:
On This Piano Was Written:
- "A Day in the Life"
- "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"
- "Good Morning, Good Morning"
- "Being for the Benefit Mr. Kite"
- And Many Others
John Lennon 1971
While famous for the music created on it during the 1960s, the piano was made 1872 by John Broadwood and Sons, a centuries-old company whose other notable customers include Mozart and Beethoven.
Online bidding runs April 10th through the 19th.
