Julien’s Auctions returns to the Big Apple for the music memorabilia auction of the year at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square on May 18, 2013. Join us in person and on line for an incomparable auction of items from The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, David Cassidy, and all of the icons of music past and present.

Highlights include a John Lennon owned Vox custom guitar known to have been played by both John Lennon and George Harrison. The guitar was gifted to Lennon’s one-time guru “Magic Alex” Madras. Other Beatles items include rare signed items, novelty and collectible Beatles items, an archive of Beatles “Butcher” cover images, proofs, and alternative album cover designs as well as a first AND second state Butcher album cover. This auction holds something for every Beatles fan.

Among them personal clothing, signed pieces, as well as Elvis Presley’s personal and gifted jewelry. Also a Bill Belew cape designed for Presley’s Aloha from Hawaii performance that was created in collaboration with Elvis and an Aloha from Hawaii prototype belt.

Michael Jackson’s gifts to fans are offered, including: a signed pillow thrown from a Paris hotel room window, a stage worn “Smooth Criminal” style hat gifted to a back stage guest, and a signed “Beat It” style jacket given to a Neverland visitor, to name just a few.

Additional highlights include jumpsuit’s from David Cassidy’s personal collection; Bette Midler stage worn clothing and awards; Rick Griffin Grateful Dead artwork; Jim Morrison handwritten poetry; Jimi Hendrix’s personal guitar strap; images signed by Madonna and Lady Gaga — the list goes on.
