lonelyhearts.jpgWell, someone out there still has discretionary income: The drum head that appeared on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band went up for auction yesterday at Christie’s London outpost, and it realized a price of £541,250, or $1,067,346. Imagine if that money had been used to, you know, buy actual Beatles albums–I’m sure the halls of EMI are filled with people fantasizing that exact scenario. The price of the drum almost makes the £421,250 ($830,706) that John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics for “Give Peace A Chance” went for seem quaint, no? Details on the drum skin’s measurements and materials after the jump.

AP061101016493.jpgYoko Ono and the film company World Wide Media are in a legal battle over who owns the rights to some undoubtedly priceless footage of John Lennon filmed in 1970. The nine hours of material are claimed to include Lennon smoking a joint, working on songs and describing his plans to put LSD in Richard Nixon’s coffee. It was filmed by Anthony Cox, Ono’s husband before Lennon, for a planned documentary. World Wide wants to use the footage for a film titled “Three Days In The Life.” Despite the fact that World Wide bought the footage directly from Cox, Ono feels she owns the copyright because she’d previously bought the footage from “a Florida man.” If you play that backwards, I’m pretty sure you hear the word “bullshit.”

wandlaura.jpgThe efforts of Clear Channel’s programmers have probably helped you already get sick of holiday music, but there are many fine celebratory songs that would never cross their airwaves out there. To help cut through the clutter we’ve asked Jon Solomon, whose 20th annual 24-Hour Holiday Radio Show on WPRB kicks off at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve, to offer up some seasonal cheer in MP3 form. Today’s song brings together George W. Bush and John Lennon’s Christmas wish for the world:
