John Lennon's "Imagine": Original Piano Delivered to Phoenix's Musical Instrument Museum
Precious cargo: A crew delivers John Lennon's "Imagine" piano to the Musical Instrument Museum.
Now this is cool.
This week, the soon-to-be-open Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in north Phoenix took delivery of the piano in which John Lennon of The Beatles composed "Imagine," a tune that some people feel is the best song ever.
The instrument - which isn't the white piano that Lennon plays in the "Imagine" video - will post up in the space's Artist Gallery alongside gear that George Benson used as well as the ax Paul Simon gigged on during his infamous Central Park concert.
The public will be able to check out this and the rest of the 250-million, 190,000-square-foot project starting on April 24, which is MIM's scheduled grand-opening salvo. For more info, go to www.themim.org.
