BEATLES DRUM HEAD FROM THEIR 1ST US TOUR WILL BE AUCTIONED IN L.A

A drum head used by the Beatles on their first US and Elvis Presley's gold-leaf piano will be auctioned off in Los Angeles next month, with both items expected to fetch more than $500,000.

 






















The Beatles drum head going under the auction hammer was hand-painted in 1964 with the Beatles' signature dropped-T logo for the iconic group's first visit to the United States.
It was used during their ground-breaking performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show," a TV variety show, and other concerts they gave during that 1964 tour.

"It's the most important drum head that will ever be auctioned of the Beatles," Julian said. "It was used during The Ed Sullivan Show, which is the most pivotal and historic moment of the Beatles' career."
Julian said the drum skin could fetch upwards of $800,000.
