You read that right! Estimated to be over six times the value, Paul McCartney’s handwritten lyrics to The Beatles hit ‘Hey Jude’ just got a new owner.
Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ breakup, Julien’s Auctions wrote about the item, “McCartney used the lyrics during the recording at Trident Studios, London, in July 1968 and later gifted them to a studio engineer. McCartney famously wrote the song for John Lennon’s son Julian as a source of comfort during the divorce of his parents John and Cynthia Lennon. The song was originally called ‘Hey Jules’”.
