John Lennon wrote this blistering letter to the McCartneys in 1971, when tensions over The Beatles' breakup were still running very high. The letter goes up for auction soon, and thus it has hit the web and our eyes 40 years or so after it was written.

Pansy Division at The Eagle
In a story that's become increasingly common over the past few years, San Francisco's famous Eagle Tavern is facing closure at the end of this month due to landlord issues. The leather bar has not only been a cultural hot spot for decades, it's also a fantastic music venue, where Thursday night lineups of bands like Pansy Division, Kelley Stoltz, Carletta Sue Kay and The Fresh & Onlys bring hoardes of gay and straight fans to the bar.Though last night there was a huge gathering of support inside The Eagle to discuss the issues at hand and find out if anything can save the bar, it heartbreakingly appears there is really nothing to be done; the landlord has decided he wants to open his own bar on the premisis.
The final Thursday night show at The Eagle will be April 28 and will include Oxbow, The Hellenes (ex- Rain Parade) and The Liar Script. No doubt it will also be a huge goodbye party for one of SF and the world's most iconic gay bars.
Tickets will be on sale April 2 here!
