|John Lennon - Steinway & Sons White Grand Piano|
Would you Lady Gaga into your home to play on your piano? Sean Lennon did, and took a picture of Gaga on his dad John Lennon's former piano in July 2010. But Beatles and Lennon fans were not impressed, and let rip their anger on twitter.
Perhaps it was the way Lady Gaga was dressed? Sean responded:
'Pianos meant are to be played. Why is everyone so uptight? 'What should we do, lock it away in a dusty room? So judgemental...'Technically the white Steinway and Sons Grand Piano belongs to Yoko Ono, as it was a birthday present from John Lennnon in 1971.
The Steinway is the very same piano that Lennon wrote the classic song "Imagine". In 2010, to commemorate John Lennon's would be 70th birthday, had he lived, Steinway and Sons pianos made a limited edition "Imagine Limited Edition Series" piano.
Here's Lady Gaga playing John Lennon's "Imagine" on another white Grand Piano, perhaps she learned her lesson from the angry twitter responses, and dressed more conservatively for the occasion!
So is there an appropriate or inappropriate way of dress when playing the piano, or is it merely the music that matters most? Your comments please.
