For Sale: 1 Left-handed Strat, $168,000

NEW YORK (AP) – Paul McCartney’s lyrics. Jimi Hendrix’s guitar. A John Lennon interview. Memorabilia from some of the most influential musicians of the 20th century hit the auction block Monday.

McCartney’s original handwritten working lyrics for the 1968 Beatles song “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” went for $192,000 at Christie’s sale of rock and pop memorabilia. The pre-sale estimate had been $200,000 to $300,000.

Hendrix’s guitar, a 1968 Fender Stratocaster with a sunburst finish that was modified to accommodate his left-handed use, sold for a staggering $168,000, well above its pre-sale estimate of $80,000 to $120,000.

The guitar has been kept at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland since the museum’s opening in 1996.

N.Y. Pettifogger Times Exclusive: Marines in serious breach of discipline.

Another exclusive from our Iraq War correspondent  Bill O’Flannel, risking his life in a bar in Trinidad using exclusive information obtained from the second cousin of a unknown stringer within the Green Zone. All rights reserved 

“I can exclusively reveal that Marines opened fire on a suicide bomber who was about to blow himself up in a market filled with women and children. The un-named man from the International Fraternal Community of Suicide Bombers was shot in cold blood as he went to detonate the belt, even though the rules of engagement clearly state that no shots can be fired until the bomb is detonated and untold civilians are killed and injured. I can reveal that Saddam Hussain has sent a report on this to the Court of Human Rights in the Haig as the relentless spiral into civil war, anarchy and Armeggedon continues to ruin this once lovely country, now in the grip of American global warming….. continued on page 946.

Tomorrow: How a Marine looked at me in a funny sort of way.
