‘Imagine’ Piano

October 18, 2000


George purchased John Lennon’s walnut-finished upright Steinway model Z piano – paying 1.45 million British pounds that would have been around 3.1 million US dollars – setting at the time the record for the most money ever paid for a piece of music memorabilia. George both composed on and played the piano, which can be heard on the title song of his Patience album. The piano was also toured globally by George as a symbol of peace in the early 2000s.
