johnlennon 1030091 John Lennon Drawing Takes Top BidA doodle drawn by [lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm] during one of his legendary “bed-in” protests has sold at auction for nearly $56,000. The drawing depicts the singer’s face and that of his wife, [lastfm]Yoko Ono[/lastfm], and was drawn during their Montreal bed-in, which took place in May of 1969.

The event took place late last week at Christie’s Auction House in London. The auction also featured a guitar once used by [lastfm]Steve Jones[/lastfm] of the [lastfm]Sex Pistols[/lastfm] and the largest collection of the [lastfm]Who[/lastfm] memorabilia ever sold at one time.

The Who collection was sold by two private collectors, Brad and Dina Rogers.

“This sale demonstrates that the market for high end, one-of-a-kind material, is as strong as it has ever been,” Brad Rogers tells the BBC, adding that he and Dina are “incredibly pleased.”
