- "My bizarre life with the Beatles, by sculptor who immortalised good, great and even gorillas."

- Some Beatles memorabilia that will soon be hitting the auction block: a piano used by The Beatles in Studio III at Abbey Road; a chunk of the Cavern Club's stage from the time The Beatles played there; and photos from a 1963 gig in the Welsh town of Abergavenny.
