Lock of John Lennon's Hair Is Auctioned Off for $35,000

Beatles legend John Lennon was murdered just over 35 years ago, but a chunk of his famously long hair has survived and recently sold for a tidy sum.

A lock of John Lennon's hair has sold for the tidy sum of $35,000.

The 4-inch hunk of the rock legend's famous tresses was snipped off as he prepared for his role in the 1967 film "How I Won the War."

According to Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, a German hairdresser kept the hair after giving the Beatle the trim.

This is the largest lock of Lennon's hair ever sold at auction, according to the auction house.

The lucky (or wealthy) auction winner was Paul Fraser, a UK-based memorabilia collector.

A spokesman summed up Fraser's purchase about as succinctly as one could, calling it a "good chunk of Lennon's hair" that "was a good size with quite a lot of strands."
