Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

 

Is this really about LSD?  I've been teased all this year for liking the Beatles.  Calling them drugies and horrible song writers.  Its been hard.  So it's almost the end of the year and I want to clear things up for this song.  I have heard that this song was about a painting by Juilan. Is this true? I need help on clearing this up.

 

Thanks!!

John Lennon, the actual composer of the song denied that it was about LSD and confirmed that it was based on a drawing of Julian's. a-hard-days-night-john-5

Horrible songwriters? Really? I bet half the crap they listen to isn't even written by the artist, and is about how many hoes they have and how rich they are... -_-

And as for druggies, pretty much every good band has been influenced by some kind of drug. It's a part of rock and roll. Even so, it was only really John that got into it that much.

Yes! It was based on a drawing of a girl named Lucy by Julian. He titled it Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. It was Lucy with stars in the background. Lucy has passed away recently.

John can deny that it was about LSD, but there is absolutely no doubt that LSD was the major influence for the song. But the name certainly came from Julian.

BeatleBaby18 - have you seen the Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds article on this site? It could probably do with some more work, but has a couple of quotes that should explain what you want to know.

Here's the painting, which I believe is now owned by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd:

Interesting Joe - I had no idea it was owned by Gilmour.

A piece of memorabilia from my favorite band owned by one of my favorite guitarists - too cool.
