September 24, 2011

Breaking news: Guernsey's has cancelled the bulk of a major Beatles auction that was scheduled for tomorrow. Astrid Kirchherr's photographs of the band's early years in Germany, as well as the intellectual property rights to the images, were originally planned to go on sale in a historic auction Saturday. But at the last hour, the company posted an announcement on their website stating that the entire lot has been sold in advance to an undisclosed buyer.There is much speculation about the identity of the buyer. Many fans wonder if Paul McCartney has stepped in to preserve and manage the archives. Spy Vibe will update readers as soon as there is more information. In the mean time, the auction will continue tomorrow with many Beatles and other music-related treasures. One of the most notable items is Elvis Presley's first guitar!

The New York auction of Astrid's Beatles archives planned for Sunday 25 September is off, so we're having a mini one for you
We just heard from Guernseys auction house in NYC that Astrid Kirchherr's entire Beatles archive has been sold to a single buyer and the auction planned for Sunday 25 September is now off. That's a real shame as we were hoping to buy the rights to a funfair shot, but hey.
So we decided that for the Beatles fans who were expecting an auction on Sunday, we would do our own Astrid mini version on eBay, on a very small scale, with three beautiful signed pieces. The auction ends Sunday at 7 pm UK time.
