Paul McCartney Lost One Of The Most Important Pieces Of Beatles Memorabilia

Friday, February 09, 2024

These days, anything connected to The Beatles should be considered incredibly valuable. Auctions regularly sell off memorabilia that has anything to do with the band for hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions. While even the tiniest note or guitar pick can go for huge sums of cash, one of the members of the group himself admitted recently that he lost something that could have fetched one of the most impressive sums ever for anything related to the chart-toppers.

Paul McCartney recently launched season two of his popular podcast, Paul McCartney: A Life in Lyrics. The series, which is co-produced by iHeartPodcasts and Pushkin, sees the legendary singer, songwriter, and musician telling behind-the-scenes stories about some of his most beloved songs, as well as his time in the group that made him a household name. In the first episode of the second installment of the show, the Grammy winner revealed something that must have had longtime lovers of The Beatles cringing.

McCartney stated that “about 10-15 years ago,” he found something very special–both to him and to the history of The Beatles. He located “The school exercise book,” but this was no ordinary notebook. The musician referred to it as “the first-ever sort of Lennon-McCartney manuscript anywhere.”
