A mansion in Surrey that was owned by The Beatles' John Lennon has gone on the market for £15 million. Lennon lived at Kenwood mansion in the St George's Hill area of Weybridge between 1964 and 1968 and is believed to have penned a number of tracks for 1967's "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" there, the BBC reports.
The legendary Beatle bought the property for just £20,000 on July 15 1964, living there with his first wife Cynthia before he married Yoko Ono in 1969 and moved to New York. [NME]
Last week, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee sent a note to Sea World asking the theme park to stop using his band's music and to shut down its "Shanu Rocks" shows for the sake of the animals. Lee teamed up with PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) to address the issue, and now the park has responded.
"PETA [People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals] is wrong concerning the effect of music on SeaWorld's killer whales," said SeaWorld VP of Communications Fred Jacobs. "We have never played a Motley Crue song in any Shamu show, nor will we. I can assure you the volume of music played during parts of our killer-whale shows poses no risk at all to our animals."
