(Classic Rock) An angry letter from John Lennon to Paul and his then-wife Linda McCartney following the breakup of The Beatles has been put up for auction.

The two-page draft, typed and hand annotated under Lennon's company Bag Productions Inc letterhead, was responding to prior correspondence to Lennon from Linda McCartney. Though undated, it's estimated that it was written in 1971, shortly before Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono moved to the US. It is expected to fetch more than $20,000 when it goes under the hammer at RR Auctions.

Lennon begins the expletive-ridden letter with: "I was reading your letter and wondering what middle-aged cranky Beatle fan wrote it. I resisted looking at the last page to find out - I kept thinking who is it - Queenie? Stuart's mother? - Clive Epstein's wife? - Alan Williams? - What the hell - it's Linda!"

Lennon continues: "I hope you realise what sh*t you and the rest of my 'kind and unselfish' friends laid on Yoko and me, since we've been together." He also insists that, while he doesn't "resent" his former bandmate, he is "sorry for him." He also suggests the McCartneys' marriage wouldn't last another two years. Read the full letter here.
