Rare Guitar Owned by Late Beatle George Harrison to Be Auctioned in May
- Tuesday, March 18, 2014

A rare Rickenbacker guitar once owned by George Harrison and also played by John Lennon is among the Beatles-themed items that will be up for bids at a music memorabilia auction scheduled to take place in New York City this May. Julien’s Auctions will hold its Music Icons 2014 sale on May 16 and 17 at the Hard Rock Café New York in Times Square.

Harrison bought the aforementioned guitar, a 1962 Rickenbacker 425, in Mount Vernon, Illinois, when he paid a two-week visit to his sister Louise in 1963.  He had the instrument painted black to resemble a guitar that Lennon was using onstage at that time.  Harrison played the guitar extensively for a while, including during The Beatles’ first appearance on the TV show Ready Steady Go! in October 1963, and in the studio when the band recorded “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”  In addition, Lennon was photographed playing the instrument backstage at an October 1963 concert in Scotland.  Harrison eventually gave the Rickenbacker to George Peckham, a friend and fellow musician who worked as an engineer for The Beatles’ Apple Studios.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night, take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive, you were only waiting for this moment to be free.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : March 23, 1964 (Monday)

Scala Theatre, Charlotte Street, London and Lime Grove Studios, London and Empire Ballroom, Leicester Square, London

Filming a Hard Day's Night switched to the Scala Theatre to central London for seven working days (this day through to April 2). The main premise of the film was that the Beatles appear on a television show, the Scala was therefore mocked-up as "United TV House". The film's "performance" finale was shot here on March 31st.

To promote his first book, In His Own Write - this was the date of the publication - John appeared on the live BBC TV program Tonight, broadcast from 7:00 to 7:35 pm from the Corporation's Lime Grove Studios in west London. Following the reading of brief extracts by programme presenter Cliff Mitchelmore and regulars Derek Hart, and Kenneth Allsop, John was interviewed by Allsop for exactly four minutes.

Later the same evening, the Beatles attended the annual Carl-Alan ballroom dancing awards event, at the Empire Ballroom in Leicester Square, Central London, where the Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Philip) presented them with two awards for their musical achievements in 1963. The moment was filmed by TV and newsreel companies, including the BBC which broadcast proceedings live from the ballroom - entitling its programme The Carl-Alan Awards - from 10:25 to 11:15 pm.
