It turns out Sean Ono Lennon and James McCartney are pals
Sean posted the snap to his Instagram today (August 14), captioning the image “Peakaboo…” The pair are also musicians themselves, so it’s no surprise that James is leaning on a guitar in the image.
This could this mean the pair are working on some new music together or it could just be a lovely selfie between two friends. See it below.
The Worldwide Auctioneers Auburn Auction will take place on September 1 and Beatles fans could get their hands on McCartney’s 1965 Mini Cooper S DeVille and Lennon’s 1979 Mercedes E 300 estate.
McCartney’s mini was one of four ordered for each Beatles member by their manager, Brian Epstein, in 1965. His Aston Martin previously sold at a London auction for just over £1.3 million.
Ringo Starr’s 1966 Mini Cooper S Radford was snapped up for £102,300 by Geri Halliwell, while George Harrison’s Mini is still owned by his wife. The whereabouts of Lennon’s bespoke Cooper S’s remain unknown.
Harrison first played the Maton Mastersound MS-500 after he sent his Gretsch Country Gentleman guitar for repairs at Manchester’s Barratts.
The store owner lent Harrison the guitar as a temporary replacement – but Harrison liked it so much that he continued to use it. It was played at the band’s last ever Cavern show in 1963.
