Conspiracy: The FBI was spying on former Beatle John Lennon.

The truth: They most certainly were. Like many counter-culture heroes, Lennon was considered a threat: "Anti-war songs, like "Give Peace a Chance" didn't exactly endear former Beatle John Lennon to the Nixon administration," NPR reported in 2010.

"In 1971, the FBI put Lennon under surveillance, and the Immigration and Naturalization Service tried to deport him a year later."

In 1957, John Lennon and Paul McCartney met at a party in Woolton. Just yards away from their meeting place was the grave of Eleanor Rigby. A bizarre coincidence, or not?

And if you still have records from that time, you may bag a few quid.
