Sheer genius on the part the Liverpool city council!! Claim John Lennon was in the building a lot and some gullible schmuck will pay top dollar for it.

If I were a Liverpool realtor, I would include in every description of every home I am selling, "John Lennon walked by this house as a child!". Or, "John Lennon peed in the shrubbery behind this house!". Who would be able to refute it?

I bet another famous person from Liverpool used it- maybe they should ask Paul to see if he and John turned up one day when not playing in the Cavern. Would add on a few extra 0's to the price.

Julien's Auctions have put up the catalogue for the "Property From The Collection of Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach" auction that will take place on 3 December on their website. 1367 lots of Ringo's stuff to look through.

In among the Beatles stuff is the White Album  No. 0000001, long believed to have nabbed by John (including by Paul):

Ringo ended up with a lot of stuff! I knew he had the guitars (and a lot of nice ones), but selling drumkits too, like the Concert For George kit (did he just get a new one for different occasions or something?!) !

Best garage sale item: a vintage British telephone booth!

Actually, that is mine and I am the one auctioning it off. If you guys want to bid on it, I'll give you the chance to do so before I skip the country and go into hiding it goes to auction.

The bidding starts at $250,000. Go.

I can't believe there's only a bid of $50k for George's guitar, that's a steal.

And the #1 Ludwig Kit listing is worth reading for the history, and the fact that all his important kits have been restored.

Also, I neglected to mention this before, but I am the Prince of Forumpoolia and I need to transfer money out of the country. You will be handsomely rewarded if you help.

Good grief. People are already selling items they bought from Ringo's auction. Here's one https://orangecounty.craigslis.....93320.html

Seems a lame excuse to be selling it even before they pick it up from the auction warehouse: "ooh it might be damaged if I brought it home", why in George's name did you bid on it then, you moron?!

If you have a spare £55,000* in your bank account, maybe you can buy Ringo's home at 10 Arnold Grove.

*May sell for more than that...we will wait and see.
