Popeater has reported:
Lucy Vodden, who inspired the Beatles‘ classic song ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,’ has died after a long battle with lupus. She was 46. Her death was announced Monday by St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, where she had been treated for the chronic disease for more than five years.
Vodden’s connection to the Beatles dates back to her youth, when she made friends with schoolmate Julian Lennon, John Lennon‘s son. Julian, then 4, came home from school with a drawing one day, showed it to his father, and said it was “Lucy in the sky with diamonds.”
A Worldwide icon. A beautifully unreal, surreal, trip, just in her name. The mythological Lucy, Sky, Diamonds (LSD), doesn’t make this story any less credible. Or her existence. The Beatle’s created a sun drenched, illusionary mirage of a goddess. Dripping with a melting sunset in your mind as you hummed the song that only could be described as the way dreams would sound if they spoke. Picture yourself in a boat on a river….
