In other Lennon news…the copy of “Double Fantasy” that John signed for his killer Mark David Chapman is set to go on the auction blocks today. John signed the copy of the album just hours before he was gunned down in 1980. Goldin Auctions is selling the album, which has police evidence markings, and it’s expected to go for more than $1 million dollars.
