Over the year, Ringo and his wife, Barbara, have accumulated an incredibly large amount of Beatles memorabilia. Of course, that shouldn’t be too much of a surprise considering Ringo was a member of the Fab Four, but what should be a surprise is this upcoming auction the two have planned.
More than 800 items owned by Ringo Starr and his wife, Barbara Bach, are going to auction, including rare Beatles memorabilia like his three-piece drum kit used in over 200 performances and a Rickenbacker guitar known as the “Beatle-Backer” that John Lennon owned and later gave to Ringo.
The unprecedented number of Beatles-owned objects will be offered Dec. 4-5 at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California.
The biggest takeaway from this auction to us is the fact that Ringo will be auctioning of one of John Lennon’s guitars. Can you imagine having one of Lennon’s guitars as your own? We sure can’t, but some lucky and well to do fan will be a much happier person come December. To read and learn more about Ringo’s massive auction, head over to NBC.
