Lucy Vodden, 46, who provided the inspiration for the Beatles' classic song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," has died after a long battle with lupus.

...

Mrs. Vodden's connection to the Beatles dates to her childhood friendship with schoolmate Julian Lennon, John Lennon's son.

Julian Lennon, then 4 years old, came home from school one day with a drawing, showed it to his father and said it was "Lucy in the sky with diamonds."

It's a damn shame, as the man was a great force. I used to listen to his show all the time (I'm from the UK) and he played some amazing music and got me into more bands than I care to mention.
