“NEW YORK (Reuters) – Original handwritten lyrics by former Beatle Paul McCartney and a guitar owned by legendary rock musician Jimi Hendrix are among the featured items in a major New York auction of rock and pop memorabilia.
Love letters and personal notes by Bob Dylan and a previously unheard interview recording with the late Beatle John Lennon will also be sold at the Christie’s Rock and Pop Memorabilia auction on December 4.
McCartney’s working lyrics written in 1968 for the Beatles song “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” from the “Abbey Road” album, is expected to fetch the highest price with an estimate of $200,000 to $300,000, according to Christie’s.”
