A handwritten letter by former BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney is expected to
make $27,000 (GBP15,000) in an internet auction.
The singer wrote the letter in 1961 to the German owner of the TOP TEN CLUB
in Hamburg to ask if The Beatles could play another gig there. Just days later
McCartney met Brian Epstein who went on to make the unknown band world
On the note is scribbled Epstein's name and phone number, as well as two
rare photo booth snaps of the singer pulling funny faces.
The young Paul also writes how he has bought a new amplifier "as big as
me" and ends it, "Cheers, Paul McCartney (The Beatles)."
A spokesman for memorabilia dealers TRACKS says, "This is important to the
history of the The Beatles."
