Items by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Billy Joel and Jimi Hendrix have reached five figures in a major rock memorabilia auction that closes tonight (Thursday). Run by New Hampshire-based RR Auction, Marvels of Modern Music features nearly 750 items from key figures in rock and pop, including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Michael Jackson and Madonna.

An interesting lot comes from producer and engineer Ron Nevison — whose personal collection of over 100 studio acetates, tapes and masters plus gold and platinum sales awards from artists he worked with, including The Who, Heart, Jefferson Starship, Bad Company and Chicago, is on the block.

As of 11 p.m. ET Wednesday, only five items had reached five figures in the bidding. They are:

•a Rolling Stones Teen Beat Night ’63 poster that’s up to $56,875
•Billy Joel’s grand piano – $49, 279
•a copy of With The Beatles autographed by the Fab Four – $40,726
•Paul McCartney’s handwritten lyrics to “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road” – $36,100
•a photo of Jimi Hendrix with an autograph, a dedication and doodles by Jimi – $16,838
One item in the auction had previously made news, a reel-to-reel tape of an interview by ABC News anchor Howard K. Smith with John Lennon, in which he describes the making of The Beatles’ Let It Be album as “going through hell.” That item had been bid to $750 by Wednesday.

Only people who have made a bid by 6 p.m. ET on Thursday are eligible to participate in the final hour of the auction and in what is called “extended bidding.” For more info and to view or bid on the items go to
