Record auction price for Bob Dylan manuscript


Now it is fair to say that Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone is not a short song, clocking in at 5 minutes 59 seconds according to the cover of Highway 61 Revisited on which it appears. Nevertheless, the price achieved at auction by Sotheby’s of the original manuscript copy, scribbled down on hotel paper, is a whopping $2 million. Like the recent sale of a John Lennon poem, also decorated with doodles, it would be enough to make Trollope weep that his own words should have been priced so low, given the volume of his output.
