Kenwood, Montagu Square & Cavendish Avenue: Sgt Pepper drum heads.






I've comped images from the '68 Kenwood home movie to give a better view of the Fool piano in the sunroom, and the Pepper drum head. John, as we can see, then took his head to Montagu Square. Paul got the prototype. A drum head was sold at Sotheby's a few years ago as the one - did John give it to somebody? Possibly; there are lots of instances where someone complimented something of John's, and he responded by handing it to them. Nice head, Johnny.
