Photographs of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, taken during John's so-called 'Lost Weekend' in 1974,
comprising: eighteen Polaroids, three colour prints and two black and white prints (copies, originals lost), as taken by Keith Moon's assistant, Peter 'Dougal' Butler, the majority unpublished, to be sold with copyright
- Please note: These photographs were taken somewhat later than as stated. Dougal Butler and Keith Moon flew to Los Angeles on the 1st April and on the 10th, after a stay at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, moved into a Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Monica beach house rented by John. The house had once belonged to actor Peter Lawford and his wife, Pat Kennedy, JFK's sister. Ringo Starr and Harry Nilsson were also resident there. The vendor states that the house phones were tapped and that John and his friends were followed by the FBI, as a result of John's ongoing fight against deportation.
