Beatles Letter Under The Hammer
A letter that details the dispute that spelt the end of THE Beatles is going up for auction in London on Thursday (05MAY05).
The 1969 note - signed by all four members - informed Sir Paul McCartney's then-music lawyer and father-in-law LEE EASTMAN he was not authorised to represent the HEY JUDE legends as well as McCartney, despite the singer's determination to assign him to the job.
It tells Eastman - who was the father of his late wife LINDA McCARTNEY - he was "not authorised to act... as the attourney (sic) or legal representative of The Beatles or of any of the companies which the Beatles own or control."
The letter is expected to fetch up to $114,000 (GBP60,000) as part of Christie's Pop Memorabilia auction in the British capital.29/04/2005 17:32
