George Michael bought the piano on which John Lennon composed the classic hit song Imagine so it would not end up in storage and could be "seen by the people". The Wham! frontman anonymously paid £1.67m for the upright historic Steinway. He later announced he was going to hand it over to the Beatles Story museum in Liverpool.
