Beatles Auction Furor

TOKYO -- Organizers of the biggest auction of Beatles memorabilia -- from the birth certificate of Paul McCartney to the only guitar signed by all four musicians -- forecast Tuesday the sale would set world record prices for pop music souvenirs.


Tokyo was chosen as the site of Saturday's auction because the "Fab Four" music is again topping charts in Japan.


Other items among the 300 up for auction are the Liverpool house where Ringo Starr was born, the piano John Lennon used to compose his classic song "Imagine" and a check for ?2.76 signed by George Harrison.
