Sunroom: piano - latest "shizzle".

It's just possible that John had one done because George had one, or that George had one done because John had one, or even that Ringo had one done because etc etc - but I doubt it. It's more than probable that's the piano from John's sunroom behind Dhani Harrison. John must have given it to George, probably when he finally left Kenwood as he and Yoko were living out of a suitcase for a few months, and carting a psychedelic piano around was, sadly, not an option. (Is this also how the sunroom sofa ends up in the Hard Rock Cafe in Florida? John gives it to Ringo and Maureen, Maureen re-marries to Isaac Tigrett and he puts it on display? Or not?). Well done to the eagle-eyed upton blue for spotting this, and thanks to Marianne Taylor for taking the time to send the scan.
