Sotheby’s in New York has decided to hold its first dedicated music history sales in over a decade.
The 150 pieces in the sale, dubbed A Rock & Roll History: Presley to Punk, come from collectors as well as those who worked in music.
The handwritten manuscript for ”Like a Rolling Stone,” considered one of the most influential songs in postwar music, could fetch as much as $2-million.
Lyrics for another Bob Dylan song ”A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall may go somewhere in the range of $400,000 to $600,000.
Memorabilia from the Beatles, the Rolling Stone and Elvis Presley’s white jumpsuit and clothing worn by other artists go on the block next Tuesday along with photographs, signed album covers, Grammy awards, original artwork and drawings.
Sotheby’s decided to see what collectors are interested in.
Earlier this month, original manuscripts and drawings by John Lennon went for $2.9-million
