A drum skin used by Beatles star Ringo Starr is expected to attract bids of £100,000 when it goes up for auction next week
Ringo Starr's drum skin is expected to fetch £100,000 at auction.
The musical accessory, which bears The Beatles logo, was given to a Pink Floyd fan at London's famous Abbey Road Studios by the band's road manager Mal Evans.
Now it is the star attraction at the Rock 'n' Roll Art and Soul Fame Bureau auction, to be held in London next Tuesday (28.04.09).
Fame Bureau Managing Director Ted Owen said: "The enduring fascination with The Beatles will forever pass between music fans and down through generations."
The drum skin is not the only Beatles memorabilia on sale.
The incredibly rare 'Beatles Cavern Poster', which advertised their first live show at Liverpool's Cavern Club is expected to fetch between £10,000 and 12,000.
The famous pink dress Madonna wore in her 1985 'Material Girl' video is also up for grabs along with the white faux fur stole complimented by a set of pink satin opera gloves. The ensemble - which also comes with two rhinestone cuffs and a rhinestone bracelet - has a guide price of £80,000.
One of the most iconic rock memorabilia pieces on auction is the 1956 Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar. The first ever Sunburst finish Gibson guitar is expected to go for £75,000.
