Today Billboard is reporting that more Beatles memorabilia is going for big bucks. For one, "the hand-painted drum skin that appeared on the sleeve of the Beatles' ground-breaking 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band sold for $1.1 million at auction on Thursday in London, four times its estimate." Additionally, John Lennon's handwritten lyrics to the song "Give Peace a Chance" went for $834,000.
Coincidentally, I also got a notice today about the couch used as "Dylan's couch" in Beverly Hills, 90210, which is up for auction. It got me thinking: If money were no object, what kind of music, TV, and movie memorabilia would I buy?
There are plenty of costume items that totally make me drool, like that green dress from Atonement, and of course, Audrey Hepburn's lovely black number from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Plus I know plenty of women who would love to have the tutu from the opening credits of Sex and the City. As for objects, it might be fun to own some of the bar stools from Cheers or the velvety Central Perk couch from Friends. And I would personally find it amusing to own one of Bill Cosby's famous sweaters.
What about you?
