Gaga memorabilia auctioned

2010-10-07 12:20
New York - Unreleased Lady Gaga songs, handwritten Paul McCartney lyrics and clothing from Princess Diana and Elvis Presley are among unique celebrity items that will be sold in an online auction this month.

McCartney's handwritten working lyrics to Maxwell's Silver Hammer from the 1969 Abbey Road album are expected to be the top seller with a price tag of at least $200 000.

But bids could start as low as $100 for items like a signed handwritten letter from Phil Spector, the music producer.

About 850 items such as CDs from Lady Gaga's first manager, Michael Jackson's crystal studded helmet worn during his 1981 Triumph tour and James Brown's original 1987 signed US passport are for sale at www.gottahaverockandroll.com from October 6 - 15.

Elvis' peacock jumpsuit

"Whether it was from ex-managers, ex-lovers, ex-wives, sons, daughters, they all come from family members or friends, some collectors," said Peter J Siegel, co-founder of GOTTA HAVE IT! Collectibles, Inc.

This is the largest of the company's Internet auctions of rock and roll and pop art. In 2008 Elvis's peacock jumpsuit sold for $300 000.

More than 90 Beatles items should be popular in the year of John Lennon's 70th birthday, Siegel said.

"He'll be forever revered in our society," he added.

Almost 50 signed guitars, Bob Dylan's signed handwritten working lyrics to his first recorded song - 1961's Song for Woody, and Kurt Cobain's black and white Santa hat worn backstage at a Nirvana concern in Seattle on Halloween night 1991 are all available.

Teenagers

Lady Gaga's first manager, Bob Leone, is selling six CDs, some autographed by the wildly popular singer when she was the shy teenager Stefani Germanotta. An unreleased 2002 original demo recording starts with a minimum bid of $1 000.

"All of them were gifts to me just because I supported her from the time she was 13 or 14," Leone said.

When the CDs were to be sold as one unit, Leone said he expected up to $15,000 for the collection. Now each is being sold individually.

Teenagers have sought any Lady Gaga material he might have from her early career, Leone said.

"This is everything I own. If I had anything else I would have brought it," he said.
