Sir Paul Mccartney - Sir Paul Mccartney Piano Hits High Note At Auction

The piano Sir Paul Mccartney used to write The Beatles' classic Yesterday has sold for $240,000 (£150,000).
The singer sat at the 1926 Art Deco green miniature piano to compose the melody to Yesterday at singer Alma Cogan's house in 1964. MCCartney has famously told how he heard the tune in a dream and hurried to the piano when he awoke so as not to forget it.
A number of stars, including Sammy Davis, Jr., Sir Michael Caine, Sir Mick Jagger and John Lennon, also played the instrument while at Cogan's London home.
The Eavestaff piano was sold by Cogan's sister at an auction in London on Friday (15Apr11). It is believed the anonymous winning bidder is an overseas private collector.
