'Lucy In The Sky' Inspiration Dies

Lucy Vodden, passed away at age 46 due to complications with the immune disease lupus. She was the inspiration for The Beatles' 1967 hit song "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

It all stemmed from a drawing done by Julian Lennon, John Lennon's eldest son. The picture was of classmate Lucy Vodden, nee O'Donnell, at the Weybridge Nursery School in 1966. This must have been one heck of a drawing, as it inspired Lennon to pen one of the most famous Beatles songs of all time.
