• Dylan manuscript of ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ to be auctioned


    WASHINGTON – Bob Dylan’s handwritten working manuscript for the lyrics of “Like a Rolling Stone” will be auctioned in June by Sotheby’s, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

    The lyrics are part of a sheaf of six pages of memorabilia from Dylan that also include the manuscript of “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall”.

    The auction, entitled the “History of Rock and Roll From Presley to Punk”, will be held June 24.

    Sotheby’s expects “Like a Rolling Stone” to fetch as much as $2 million (1.4 million euros), double the current record price for a rock manuscript at Sotheby’s, a title held by John Lennon’s “A Day in the Life” which it sold in 2010.

    “Hard Rain” is expected to sell for $400,000 to $600,000.

    The auction house said that the owner of the Dylan manuscript, who lives in California, wishes to remain anonymous, the Times reported.
