Going, going, John....Lennon's house sells for £480,000
 - Wednesday, October 30, 2013 

John Lennon's first home was sold to a US buyer for nearly half a million pounds. The red-bricked terrace house,  in Wavertree , where the former Beatle lived with his parents and grandparents, went at auction for a whopping £480,000.

The sale of number nine Newcastle Road was held at the Cavern Club, in Liverpool, and  attracted a handful of potential buyers, including a few international bidders. The three-bedroomed home had a top guide price of £250,000 but went for nearly twice that after a two bidders, one on the floor and one on the phone, became embroiled in a bidding war. But it was an anonymous US bidder on the phone that took the lot. Jason Doll-Steinberg lost out after the price soared way above what he wanted to pay. He travelled all the way from London to try and buy a piece of Beatles history.

A Hard Days's Night

Very little needs to be said about this trend-setting 1964 classic: Simply put, A Hard Day's Night is the finest rock 'n' roll comedy ever made. It hit America shortly after the Beatles themselves did, and with the Fab Four as popular as they were, Stateside audiences would've been happy just to see and hear John, Paul, George, and Ringo perform such hit songs as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," "And I Love Her," and the title tune.

But director Richard Lester (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), working from a script by Alun Owen, further delighted moviegoers with his wonderfully offbeat, visually inventive chronicle of a 36-hour period in the group's hectic life.

He made no attempt to turn the Beatles into actors but encouraged them to give free rein to their naturally zany impulses; the result was a wacky, fast-paced romp with a carefully cultivated air of spontaneity and hokey sight gags reminiscent of silent-era comedies.

 

 Paul McCartney Quote of the week

"Painting is a magical process that I like, where you conjure something out of nothing; you get a little idea that leads you through ... You can go into a trance while you're doing it, so it's a nice contrast to real life. "

Paul McCartney
