LONDON (AFP) – A first draft of Beatles song ‘I’m Only Sleeping’ leads a flurry of pop memorabilia up for grabs at Christie’s in London next week.
Christie’s is auctioning more than 230 lots of rare recordings, instruments and clothes on Wednesday, with John Lennon’s draft lyrics for “I’m Only Sleeping” expected to fetch in excess of 200,000 pounds (295,000 euros, 360,000 dollars).
The late ex-Beatle’s song was sketched out mostly in blue felt pen in 1966 before ending up on the “Revolver” album.”
