SIGNED BEATLES APPLE HEADQUARTERS PAPERS INCLUDED IN HUGE MUSIC AUCTION

























A rare document thought to be one of the last items ever signed by John Lennon is to go under the hammer.
The contract for the sale of The Beatles’ Apple headquarters is set to go up for auction in Boston with a guide price of $80,000 (around £55,000)
The document, was signed by all four members of the iconic band when they bought 3 Savile Row in London for £500,000.


A rare document thought to be one of the last items ever signed by John Lennon is to go under the hammer.
All four Beatles installed their own office in the property, as well as a studio in the basement, where they recorded Let It Be - and performed for the last time together on the roof.
Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo said: “This document was formally adopted in late November of 1980, thus making it one of the last documents signed by John Lennon during his life.
“John Lennon signed in black felt tip pen, and has added a facial caricature, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr (who has signed as R. Starkey, his legal name as required on documents), have all signed in blue ballpoint.”
Robert Livingston, executive VP at RR Auction in Boston, said: “It’s likely one of the final fully signed Beatles documents by all four members.
“This document represents a major landmark in the history of popular music— with the final sale of the Beatles’ Apple Corps building, it was truly the end of an era.”
Other items going on sale at the auction is a signed Sgt Pepper album and rapper Tupac Shakur’s Hummer — purchased a month before his death.
