Bob Dylan Lyrics Could Get $2 Million at Upcoming Auction
Bob Dylan’s original handwritten lyrics to the classic “Like a Rolling Stone’, are coming up for auction. Sotheby’s is selling the lyrics as part of its sale scheduled for Tuesday.
The lyrics from the 1965 song, written on hotel stationary and filled with revisions and doodles, is the top lot and could fetch as much as $2 million. Also on the block: the peacock jumpsuit that Elvis Presley wore in his Las Vegas performances, and Jimi Hendrix’ famous $1 contract, which gave performing rights to PPX Enterprises for only a dollar and cost the performer a fortune in his career. It is rumored to have buyers ready to bid between $100,000 and $200,000.
