Lucy Vodden

 

 

Age: 46

 

Summary: childhood friend of John Lennon's son Julian who inspired the Beatles' classic song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds when her then-4-year-old schoolmate Julian Lennon made a drawing of her and called it "Lucy in the sky with diamonds", in which the elder Lennon developed it into what is widely regarded as a psychedelic masterpiece with images of "newspaper taxis" and a "girl with kaleidoscope eyes" as rock critics thought the song's title was a veiled reference to LSD, but John Lennon always claimed the phrase came from his son.
