Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Many people think the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is about an LSD trip. It may actually be true, but the inspiration for the song came to John Lennon when his son Julian brought home a drawing from school and told his father, "That's Lucy in the sky with diamonds." Julian was about 4 years old at the time and had drawn a picture of his friend, Lucy. As it turns out, there really was a "Lucy" and her name is Lucy Vodden.

The AP has just reported that Lucy Vodden is suffering from Lupus, and was recently contacted by Julian who wanted to help. Read this article in USA Today for the rest of the story.
