Sad news out of England today with word that Lucy Vodden passed away this weekend.
She had been battling lupus.
Julian was just a gradeschooler when he came home with a drawing of Vodden. Asked by his Beatle father who the picture was of, Julian reportedly said Lucy in the sky with diamonds, which John Lennon always swore was the story behind the song — although some critics maintained it was a reference to L.S.D.
In June, Julian Lennon had heard of Vodden’s struggles with lupus and reached out.
And now comes word that Vodden lost the battle, so our condolences to her family.
