Courtroom Battle Looms For Rock Icons

Subscribe to Elvis Presley alerts

Elvis Presley and legendary rockers THE Beatles are set for a courtroom showdown - over the rights to a basement. Rival shop owners Sid Shaw and Howard Cohen, who respectively own neighbouring memorabilia stores Elvisly Yours and The London Beatles Store in London's Baker Street, are squabbling over the rights to the shared basement. A contract was drawn up in 2005, granting Beatles fan Cohen exclusive access to the storage space, but Shaw insists he has broken it by not paying his agreed half of the rent and allowing water damage to ruin valuable merchandise. As a result, Shaw will be dusting off his white jumpsuit in preparation for this week's courtroom showcase (begs22Oct07). He says, "Every day he stays in the basement I suffer further loss. He has cost me thousands."
