Can you imagine what is tucked away inside Bob Dylan’s home garage or attic?
After his ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ lyrics sold for more than $2 million at auction, he and his family have to wonder what they can sell to avid collectors willing to part with big bucks for Dylan ephemera and keepsakes from over the years.
The handwritten manuscript for Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” sold Tuesday for just over $2 million at Sotheby’s auction house in New York. The four-page draft on hotel stationery, written in pencil, shows a number of phrases that didn’t make the cut for the songs as Dylan originally recorded it, along with the now-classic lines that did: “How does it feel / To be on your own / No direction home / Like a complete unknown / Like a Rolling Stone.”
We do not know who thee buyer is but the purchase price topped the previous record of $1.2 million paid in 2010 for John Lennon’s lyrics to “A Day in the Life” from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
Other items in the sale included memorabilia from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley.
