|Nobody believes me. This is the truth. My son came|
home and showed me this drawing of a strange
looking woman flying around, and I said,
'What is it?' And he said it was Lucy in the sky
with diamonds. I said, 'Oh, that's beautiful,'
and I immediately wrote a song about it.
—John Lennon, 1967
I just learned this story last evening at the Ed Turner and Number 9 show.
