John, the last of the four Beatles to learn to drive, got his driver’s license in 1965 at the age of 24. Almost immediately, various car dealerships in London parked an array of luxury vehicles outside his home, hoping to make a sale. He chose one and the race, so to speak, was on. After numerous near misses, he totaled his Aston-Martin in 1969 on a trip to Scotland with his wife, Yoko Ono; his son, Julian; and Kyoko, Ono’s daughter. Lennon needed 17 stitches after the accident.
He and Yoko mounted the wrecked car on a pillar at their home in England. After that, he kept a chauffeur on call 24 hours a day.
