John Lennon's detention sheets to be auctioned

By Laura Kittell. CREATED Nov 11, 2013

LONDON (AP) - John Lennon apparently wasn't an advocate of peace and love in high school.
   
A pair of the late Beatle's detention sheets show him being punished for "fighting in class," ''shoving" and being a general nuisance.
   
The sheets from Quarry Bank High School for Boys in Liverpool are to be sold online by TracksAuction.com later this month.
   
One of the sheets says Lennon showed "just no interest whatsoever" in school.
   
The company said Monday that the detention sheets date from 1955 and 1956.
   
Despite his poor school record, Lennon went on to co-write some of the most memorable pop songs in music history.
