A handwritten note John Lennon penned on the day of his murder has gone on sale for $154,000. The Beatles legend was gunned down outside his home in New York City by Mark Chapman in December 1980.

The day before his death, Lennon had borrowed a guitar string from another band while recording at the Record Plant Studio in the Big Apple. He returned the next day and gave an autograph to one of the studio's sound technicians, writing, "For Karl, who strung me along, thanx, John Lennon, 1980."

Lennon then returned to his home at The Dakota apartment block and was shot at the entrance. His note to the studio worker has now gone up for auction on memorabilia website, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.

The sale comes just days after Chapman was denied parole for the sixth time. He's scheduled to appear before the board again in 2012.

what is this crock? go away troll. There is no unknown daughter. This guy tried posting this crap all over the internet when Michale Jackson was still alive saying he would have to pay pay pay. Now that MJ is dead it's the pope. What a jackass.

Some people hate the thought of a lovechild. They want to believe that no rock star has a lovechild or that the lovechild doesn't count. According to John Lennon she counted. You will see a movie made on John Lennon and this lovechild daughter. How he cried to see her. People are going to be hurting for John Lennon. If you don't you must be insensitive. Remember Anna Nicole. Well this one is sad too.
