Late rock legend John Lennon is set to be honoured with a new exhibition in New York.
Instruments and handwritten lyrics belonging to the former Beatle will go on display at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex in the Big Apple later this month (May09).
Entitled John Lennon: The New York City Years, it will also show personal photographs and a self-portrait of the late star.
A portion of the proceeds from the exhibition will go towards Spirit Foundations, a charitable organisation created by Lennon and Yoko Ono.
