This, along with other items, such as a parking ticket that was issued to Ringo Starr will be for bidding.

  • The Beatles is a British band that was formed back in 1960 and is considered as the most influential band of all time
  • Items that were used by the members of the band are still sought after and will fetch a very high price
  • John Lennon’s round sunglasses and a parking ticket that was given to drummer Ringo Starr is up for bidding at a London auction until December 13, 2019

Without a doubt, one of the most influential bands that ever came out is The Beatles. Formed back in 1960, their songs still hold up until now and different performers still look up to them until now.

The band was composed of four members: John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr. From a small band that was formed in Liverpool back in 1960, they blew up and was able to influence the United States as well with their own brand of music.

Memorabilia from the band is still sought after, even now, and bids for such an item can sky rocket for the right buyer.

This December, new items have become available for auction, including the iconic round sunglasses used by John Lennon, and even a parking ticket that was issued to Ringo Starr back in 1969.

The said items were kept by their former driver Alan Herring. He also gave a story of how he got the sunglasses: He said that Lennon left it at his car’s backseat and noticed that one of the arms was broken. When he asked Lennon if he wanted it fixed, he said to not worry about it, and that it was “just for the look.”

Both the sunglasses used by John Lennon and Ringo Starr’s parking ticket, along with other things that the band had used, is up for auction at Sotheby’s and it will be open until December 13, 2019, 10:00 PM PST.

Among the other items are closed that were worn by the band members, a cigarette lighter that was used by the band in Herring’s car, and George Harrison’s guitar, which is predicted to get a bid of up to £60,000.
