I saw a quick blurt on Showbiz Tonight on CNN yesterday...they said a magazine signed by John Lennon sold for $12,000. That's a bit steep for a Lennon signature, but it is the magazine in which he's quoted as saying The Beatles are more popular than Jesus (for those young folks, after Lennon said this, a lot of protests were staged and burning of Beatles albums took place).
Lennon then held a press conference for the idiots of the world, explaining: I never said we were better than Jesus. I said we were more popular.
He went on explaining the statement a bit further, but to religious nuts, I'm sure it did little good.
