|John Lennon spotted at Capitol Records tower in Hollywood|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Tuesday, 11/17/15 2:04 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
About a week ago, on of one Gillian Lomax's Beatles Magical History Tours of Los Angeles, Gillian and her tour guests were surprised with something special outside of the Capitol Records tower on Vine Street in Hollywood.
What they unexpectedly found was the above chalk-drawing of John Lennon holding up a peace sign on a psychedelic background on the sidewalk to the right of the main entrance of the Capitol Records building, drawn by an anonymous fan. It had obviously only been created recently, as there had been some rain in the area the week before.
Gillian said, "It was a Sunday and not too many people out and about around Capitol Records. I noticed it first and went over and took several pics because whoever is the artist did a good job. Everyone on the tour agreed it was very well done and pleasantly surprised to see such a great job in chalk outside Capitol Records."
Coincidentally, the heart-felt fan art takes on new poignancy in light of Friday's tragic events in Paris.
You never know what's going to happen on one of Gillian's Beatles tours. No place in the U.S. has as much combined Beatles history as Los Angeles, and Gillian has spent a lot of time researching her tour.
"Most people don't associate Los Angeles with The Beatles, but in fact they've had a personal connection with our city since 1964," says Gillian, who was originally raised in Merseyside across from Liverpool.
The cost for the four hour tour is $75. To take a Magical History Tour, or for more information, visit www.amagicalhistorytour.com.
