Memorabilia from Michael Jackson, The Who and the Sex Pistols also went under the hammer at Christie's

A cartoon drawn by John Lennon during his 1969 ‘bed-in’ protest with wife Yoko Ono in Montreal has fetched £37,250.

The sketch went under the hammer at Christie’s in London earlier this week, alongside memorabilia from Michael Jackson and The Who, reports BBC News.

Jackson‘s sequined stage jacket went for £22,500, while a Gibson SG guitar played by Pete Townshend on a 1971 tour was sold for £49,250.

A guitar smashed by Sex Pistols man Steve Jones during a show at London’s 100 Club fetched £16,250.

Earlier this year, John Lennon’s handwritten lyric sheet for 1967 Beatles song ‘A Day In The Life’ sold for $1.2 million (£800,000) at Sotherby’s in New York.
