John Lennon’s official Instagram page revealed a really rare photo of The Beatles star playing a bizarre instrument, alphorn (also known as ‘Labraphone.’)

Here is the story:


‘I’m a cinema verité guitarist; I’m a musician and you have to break down your barriers to hear what I’m playing. I’m an artist and if you give me a tuba, I’ll bring you something out of it.’ – JL, 1970⁣

Caption from The Beatles Book Monthly No. 128: ‘John showed us the weirdest collection of musical instruments we’d ever seen in his Weybridge home. Here he is playing the top half of a Swiss horn!’ ⁣
