One of the benefits of being a billionaire is to be able to spend money on discretionary purchases. Colts owner Jim Irsay does just that from time to time. Through TMZ.com, Irsay recently unlocked $ 718,750 for John Lennon's piano.
(Unless, of course, the piano does not belong to the musician John Lennon, but to the periodontist Jon Lennon.)
Fortunately for Irsay, it seems to be the real thing, the one used by Lennon to write songs for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, one of the Beatles best-known albums. The piano would be accompanied by a plaque stating: "On this piano, it was written: A day in life, Lucy in the sky with diamonds, Hello Hello, To benefit Mr. Kite, and full of others. John Lennon. 1971. "
Irsay has other musical artifacts. Which is probably the best thing to do to possess a real musical talent.
