The ones on the back are fine....from April 5, 1962 at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. They were about to travel to play at the Star Club in Hamburg...it was when they arrived they found out that Stu Sutcliffe had passed away on April 10, 1962. This was "Beatles Fan Club Night". They wanted to thank the kids for all their support before they went off the Germany. The first set...they wore their leather clothes, and for the second set, their wore their new Beno Dorn suits.

This guy was great!

Hi Steve,

I came across your site as I purchased an item at a fund raising auction. It is a double cd signed by ACDC with a couple of photos 

Th certificate of Authenticity shows it put together by Coolworld Collectables. I got this in 2010-11 and it has been on a wall without any sunlight or heat at all. The signatures have totally disappeared making it worthless. 

Can you suggest any course of action i can tke?

thank you

Loretta Pearson

Last I heard, there were no genuine, intact Beatles-signed guitars known. The only one was reportedly destroyed in a Malibu, Calif. landslide about 15 years ago.



RR Auction sold one a Beatles signed guitar around 2010, but the owner had tapped the autographs down with an awl to, um, "preserve them."…
