"What you say? This is the famous "butcher" cover. I’ts too horrible e blaahhh to even be seen! (So don’t look) but can sell it for 11 million dollars. My original idea for the cover was better - decapitate Paul - but he wouldn’t go along with it.
WAY TO GO PAUL.

Julian Lennon with John’s Uncle Charlie (Alfred’s Brother)
Also found this cute story that Charlie Lennon told about young John:"It was a Saturday morning in Liverpool in 1945. Four-year-old John Lennon stood in Penny Lane, gazing longingly at the toys in a sweetshop window while he and his Uncle Charlie, home on furlough from wartime service, waited for John’s mother to return from an errand in a nearby fish shop.
"We’re lookin’ in the window, and John’s pointin’ at this tin bus in the window," recalls Charlie, now a robust 79. "I said to him, ‘You want that?’ So we go in and I buy it for him, don’t I? I asked, ‘How much for the bus?’ They said, "Well, the bus is two pounds fifty, and the Donald Duck…’ I said, ‘What Donald Duck?’ They said, ‘The one he’s walking out with.’ John was walking out the door with a Donald Duck on wheels, pulling it with a piece of string. Mind you, he’d broken it before he got home!
"When I was invited to John’s home [in 1967], his dad said to me, ‘What are you going to say to John when you see him? You haven’t seen him since the Newcastle Road days.’ I said, ‘I’ll ask him for me bus back!" He’d still got the bus-it was up in the music room when I last saw it."
John Lennon’s parody of Bob Dylan.
“Sometimes I wish I was just George Harrison, you know, get all the answers. Oh my god. Oh my god”

John Lennon playing keyboard
Scanned from the Christie’s pop memorabilia auction catalog from October 2001. (purchased off ebay October 2013). The photos were pretty dark, so I tried to lighten them up some.
