John Lennon Signed Rolling Stone Magazine Issue #74 Beatles Autograph ITEM SOLD
This Rolling Stone magazine has been signed (adding "love") by John Lennon on the front cover in black ballpoint or biro pen. This is Rolling Stone issue #74 dated January 21, 1971. A photo of Lennon also graced the cover of the very first issue of Rolling Stone. The interview that is featured in this issue became the book "Lennon Remembers", which used this same cover photo by Annie Liebowitz for the cover of the book. The signature was acquired by a friend of David Peel's, a relative of Elephant's Memory drummer Rick Frank. The magazine has been kept in a plastic bag for decades. There is some normal wear, some flaking of edges. Pages are starting to break through at corners of folds. There is underlining of passages in the interview by previous owner in pen. Inset photo shows the magazine center spread, which is the start of the Lennon interview. The blurry matte effect of the cover photo is caused by reducing the photo to fit here, the actual cover is sharp and clear.
