Noteworthy Now

Note paper from a former Washington DC hotel would not be of much interest or value in a garage sale, but four sheets of the hotel stationary once provided in rooms at the Roger Smith Hotel fetched a top bid of $2 million Tuesday (6/24). It was on those pages that Bob Dylan scribbled the only known draft of the words to Like A Rolling Stone in 1965. Adding value to the artifact, alternate lyrics for a few lines Dylan was considering and his doodlings of some seemingly random items.  The high bidder's identity was not announced. The amount paid for the iconic lyrics easily eclipsed the $1.2 million paid for the Lennon penned lyrics for A Day In The Life, which sold in 2010.
