McCartney letter offering drummer tryout fetches $55,400

LONDON — Christie's auction house says a handwritten letter from Paul McCartney offering a Beatles audition to a mystery drummer has sold for nearly 35,000 pounds (US$55,400).The note, found folded in a book at a Liverpool yard sale, offered an audition to someone who had advertised their availability in the Liverpool Echo newspaper four days earlier. The unsigned ad said simply: "Drummer--Young--Free."The letter was dated Aug. 12, 1960 -- two years before the band bounced drummer Pete Best in favour of Ringo Starr.
