Rights to a collection of John Lennon's letters have been sold
Wife of the late John Lennon, Yoko Ono, has sold the rights to a collection of letters written by the musician.
The Rolling Stone Magazine explained that The Beatles' biographer Hunter Davies persuaded Ono to sell the notes so that they could be published on the 50th anniversary of the band's debut single, 'Love Me Do', which will be in October 2012.
The world renowned music publication also confirmed:
"The book will be comprised of over 150 letters written over the course of Lennon's life, including notes to record companies and newspapers, several drawings and a letter to an eight-year-old boy. According to Alan Samson of Orion, a majority of the letters and drawings in the book have not been seen by the public."
