Michael To Lend Lennon Piano To Anti-war Exhibition
Pop superstar GEORGE MICHAEL will lend a piano previously owned by JOHN LENNON to an anti-war exhibition in America in December (06). The former BEATLE composed his anthemic IMAGINE on the upright piano - not the instrument featured in the video for the song - and it will be transported to Dallas, Texas for the exhibition organised by Michael's partner KENNY GOSS. Goss, who owns the Goss Gallery in Dallas, says, "We decided to do it in Dallas, because what better place is there to reiterate how important peace is? "Dallas is (President) George Bush's home. It's a great place to remind people how important it is that we find peace." Michael bought the piano at auction in 2000 for more than $2 million (GBP1.1 million).
