(CTN News) – When it is put up for auction, the handwritten lyric sheet that David Bowie used for two of his songs might potentially cost up to one hundred thousand pounds.
All of the revisions, drafts, and notes that the late vocalist made while he was working on his songs Rock n Roll Suicide and Suffragette City are included in these recordings.
He included both of them on his legendary album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which was released in 1972.
An earlier sale at the auction house brought in a total of 165,000 pounds for a page of David Bowie’s handwritten lyrics for his popular song “Starman.”
In January 2016, David Bowie passed away at the age of 69 due to liver cancer.
According to a note that is attached to the sheet, it was presented to the original owner by David Bowie at Trident Studio together with a number of other pages of original lyrics, some of which did not survive.
The V&A museum was given the page on loan, and it remained with the exhibition for a period of five years, during which time it traveled across the world between the years 2013 and 2018.
She’s Electric, Going Nowhere, Step Out Tonight, Rockin’ Chair and Champagne Supernova are some of the songs included in the lyric book featured in the sale. This book was formerly owned by Noel Gallagher, who was a member of the band Oasis.
Additional items that are up for sale include guitars, amplifiers, and musical scores composed by a variety of performers, as well as a sheet that has lyrics that Jim Morrison, the frontman for The Doors, scrawled.
On Tuesday, Omega Auctions will list the David Bowie lyric sheet as one of their items for sale. The sheet is estimated to be worth between fifty thousand and one hundred thousand pounds.
