The day John Lennon played dead


In a flash of good taste the Daily Mail writes that the photo above "appears to forsee the moment twelve years later when Lennon would be gunned down in New York by crazed fan Mark Chapman."


It's one of a batch of unseen photos from "The Beatles' Mad Day Out,' the group's last official photo shoot, that surfaced today. Society photographer Tom Murray, who took the shots on July 20th, 1968 in London, says he'd found the originals in an envelope.


He's selling copies for £325 each or £425 with a frame but experts believe the originals are worth £100,000 each.

I love how Paul is squeezing his chubby belly.
