A paper sheet with the lyrics of a song written by John Lennon, sold for 1.2 million dollars

The amount for which the paper with the lyrics “A Day In The Life” was awarded far exceeded initial estimates, which amounted to 700,000 dollars. The song was the last track on the album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, released in 1967 and was the soundtrack of a musical with the same title, in 1968.

The person who purchased the sheet, with erasures and cuts, written by Lennon, was an American who participated by telephone from Friday’s auction, organized by Sotheby’s in New York.

Although they have exceeded one million dollars, these lines have not yet managed to become the most expensive ever sold by Beatles in an auction, given that in 2005, handwritten lyrics to “All You Need is Love” were awarded for 1.25 million dollars.

The song “A Day In The Life” was ranked by Rolling Stone among the best 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Beatles, composed of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr was one of the most famous and successful groups in rock history, having an experience of over 1.1 billion albums sold worldwide.

Will Mick Jagger perform next to Johnny Depp in the new Pirates of The Caribbean movie?

It seems that Johnny Depp managed to get Keith Richards also on board as his on-screen father, and is now aiming for another Rolling Stone.

“Johnny is working closely with Disney on the next chapter of Pirates of the Caribbean and has put a lot of ideas forward,” reveals a movie insider.

“Some of the more fun ideas include getting Mick in with Keith as pirate elders. He thinks they would be perfect.”

Depp, also declared recently that he can’t wait to make more Pirates movies.

“I can’t wait to get back in costume,” he said last month. “Some people will say, ‘Aha, Depp sold out by doing the sequels.’ But it was never an issue for me. I love Captain Jack so much I’d do Pirates 7 if they asked me.

“Sometimes you fall in love with who you’re playing.”
