We missed that!

Unused photo for Abbey Road album cover
Saturday 18th March at Hotel Drouot in Paris a sale of Beatles memorabilia attracted hundreds of potential buyers.
The collection of one man, Jacques Volcouve, who founded the French fan club of the fab four, objects of all kinds went under the hammer. Alternative covers for Sergeant Pepper, Abbey Road, plus posters, discs, letters, merchandise, all collected over 50 years by M Volcouve. He describes himself as a passionate admirer of The Beatles, but not obsessive. Trying to have a complete collection of ephemera and works would take forever, he said.
On a day when rock and roll lost its inspirational "founder", Chuck Berry, hundreds of items relating to a group of musicians who were influenced by him will enter the collections of other admirers.
