The Best Things In Life Are Auctioned

2004_12_09theBEATLES.gifThe Beatles 1964 album Beatles For Sale is no longer simply an album but a way of life. On Dec. 15, rare and not-so-rare Beatles memorabilia goes on the auction block in Toronto.
Canadian auction house Empire Auctions will offer a 45 of the single “Love Me Do” with the red-and-silver Parlophone label, Yellow Submarine artwork from animation artist Ron Campbell, and nine other early Beatles singles.
Among the other items up for grabs, there’s a signed copy of the Rolling Stones album Sticky Fingers, Randy Bachman’s first electric guitar, a record chart signed by Rik Emmett of Triumph, and a sign copy of Rush’s 1974 debut album.
Local collector Greg Godovitz, of Goddo fame, is selling many of the items. He will hopefully use his profits from the auction to finance a new Goddo album, or not at all.
