|John Lennon, 1940-1980, was a genius songwriter and an LSD enthusiast.|
Fans of Beatles legend John Lennon have uncovered where he hid his LSD stash on the grounds of his southern England home more than 40 years ago.
Several large broken glass bottles in a leather holdall were discovered by builders digging up the lawn of his old home, Kenwood, in Surrey, reports The Sun.
According to legend, Lennon buried a large quantity of acid in his garden in 1967 when The Beatles proclaimed they’d given up drugs in favor of transcendental meditation.
When the Fab Four returned from the spiritual odyssey on which hoped to learn great truths from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India, John had second thoughts about wasting all that LSD, and tried to dig it up. The musician never found his acid stash again.
Fans say they are convinced the bottles contained the missing acid, though that is just conjecture at this point, since the one intact bottle had a cracked cork and was empty.
“The directions to the stash are on the Beatles’ White Album record,” one wiseacre named “Mikeo” commented, “but you have to play it backwards.”
