Long thought to be a coded reference to the drug, but wasn't it revealed that it actually came about when John was looking at a picture his son Julian had drawn. John asked who the girl in the drawing was and Julian replied, "that's Lucy (a school friend) in the sky with diamonds"?
Happy to be wrong here, but I'm sure I've heard this explaination in several different sources.
