John Lennon NYC Exhibit To Include Bloody Clothes He Wore On Night He Was Killed

The new John Lennon exhibition “The New York Years,” which opened yesterday at The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex in NYC, just got a bit more somber. One of the new features for the exhibit, which runs through the end of the year, will be the clothes Lennon was wearing the night he was murdered -- blood and all.

As reported by BBC, the clothes will be contained in a paper bag for inclusion in the show, which celebrates Lennon’s life during his residency in the Big Apple in the 1970s. Other items on display include handwritten lyrics, his trademark black wire frame glasses, and personal letters that describe the struggle with a possible deportation (his green is card pictured above).

Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, said the consideration to include Lennon’s murder clothes was hard: "I know it's a kind of a sad and very poignant kind of paradox, I think, that he loved this place so much and this where he was killed.”

The Beatle was shot and killed outside his apartment building The Dakota in 1980 at the age of 40. Let’s hope that Ono has finished mailing those acorns.
