McCartney Halts Auction of ‘Hey Jude’ Lyrics

from the antiques-roadshow dept.

Paul McCartney (excuse me; Sir Paul McCartney) has obtained a court injunction halting an auction of the original handwritten lyrics to ‘Hey Jude’, claiming the lyrics had disappeared from his home under mysterious circumstances. The best part of the story is the original response given by Christie’s, the auction house, which had appraised the value of the sheet of notebook paper at more than $100,000: that if Sir Paul wanted his lyrics back, he should just bid on them at the auction. The judge said, uh, no.
