Rare Beatles Guitar Sells

This beautiful rare VOX guitar was used by John Lennon and George Harrison and went up for auction last Saturday. Harrison played the guitar while practicing “I am the Walrus” during The Magical Mystery Tour and by Lennon while recording a video session for “Hello, Goodbye.”

The auction house thought they would get about $200,000 for it but it ended up selling for $408,000. Crazy!

Elvis’ Underwear Up for Auction

Oh man this is really really gross so I had to post it. Elvis Presley’s disgustingly soiled underwear are going up for auction in England next month. These undies were worn in 1977 when Elvis was NOT the hottie everyone loved. The auction house thinks they’ll get about $15,000 to $16,000 for them. GROSS!

Beatles Handwritten Lyrics For Auction

Sotheby’s is auctioning off the handwritten lyrics to “A Day in the Life” written by John Lennon on June 18th. It’s not the final draft but it has Lennon’s sketch of what became the actual song. Sotheby’s doesn’t think it will surpass the $1 million mark the handwritten lyrics to “All You Need is Love” did back in 2005 but think it should be somewhere between $500,000 to $700,000.

Suge Knight Auctioned off his Assets

You know I love to report on fat head Suge Knight. Well last weekend he has some of his possessions auctioned off to pay storage debts. There was clothing, furniture and gym equipment. This stuff came from his former Malibu mansion that was sold in 2008. According to reports, a photo of Suge and Tupac went for only $100 and a flat-screen TV that went for $230. Only $4,500 was made on his crap which didn’t quite pay the storage fees. You know this fool has money hidden all over the place. Seriously, Death Row Records was worth millions of dollars.

Jackson’ Moonwalk Glove Sells Big

For some reason I thought this piece was already sold but I guess not.  Michael Jacksons rhinestone encrusted glove that he wore on the infamous Motown 25th Anniversary Special TV show back in 1983 when he first showed everyone the Moonwalk sold for $350,000.  It went to Hoffman Ma, a Hong Kong business man for his hotel in Macau China.

MJ Glove Goes for $66,000

I feel like every month one of his gloves goes up for sale.  Maybe it’s just me.  Well the ‘Profiles in History’ auction held near LA sold the 80’s white glove that had bugle beads and Austrian crystal rhinestones and fitted with 50 small lights sold for a ridiculous $66,000.  Who has that money sitting around?  Geez.  Well this is what is.
