One in a Million Lonely Hearts Club at Auction
The Beatles iconic drum skin on the front cover of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band went to auction yesterday in London, fetching over $1 million.
The item was the most popular of the Beatles memorabilia that sold at Christie's Auction House, getting four times more than expected. A hand-penned lyric sheet of John Lennon's Give Peace a Chance" also sold well with a winning bid of over $800,000. A bunch of never- before-seen Beatles photos and Lennon's sunglasses from the Mind Games sleeve were also auctioned off.
