Lucy Is In The Sky With Diamonds

The little girl who inspired John Lennon to pen “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” has died of the autoimmune disease lupus. Despite many fans believing the song was about LSD, it was really inspired by his young son Julian’s classmate Lucy O’Donnell. Julian had drawn a picture of her at school and when he took it home he told his dad it was”Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”. Lucy O’Donnell (Vodden) was 46 years old.

    this is really interesting~ i, like many others did think it was about LSD….Trippin’ Rip told me so but he was probably high on it at the time. (smile)
